Default How should I overwinter my container plants?

They are about 7 ft tall.
I can put them in a south facing window with temps 65 - 68 F.
Or I can put them to sleep in the cellar with no light and temps in mid 50's. If I do that, should I remove the soil and cut off the leaves?

I would (and plan to) put them in the south window. They'll slow growth but not go dormant completely, so transitioning back outside and possibly flowering will be faster.

Wow those are some big plants to bring indoors.

There are a few good DIY Youtube videos that have some good information you could use to make your decision.
Just pick and choose what works for you.
There are also some good threads within the forum too.

Here is a good one to start.
Time to put the bananas to sleep for the Winter
