Default musa ice cream getting ready for real sunlight

how deep/wide of a hole should i dig for my ice cream banana plant? it's in a 12" wide pot 11" deep. I plan on taking it out everyday for about two weeks to adjust to natural sunlight. I was also wondering if I need to keep putting it under the grow light when I bring it back in?

Looking fine.....take that plant and put it in a semi shady spot and let the plant sort itself out.
Leave the plant outdoors.

No direct sun.

I have mine in about a 12" pot as well. I started babying it a bit as well with putting under the shade of my tree and gradually moved it into more sunlight. Definitely want to keep it outside as much as possible to get some growth before fall.
