Cool Nighttime Temps

Alright, this may seem like a silly question, but this is my first summer with bananas. I have 11 different kind of bananas that I'm currently hauling in and out every day (except my two basjoos) and I'm wondering, with daytime temps in the low 90's and nighttime temps in the low 60's, is it fine to leave my bananas outside at night? I'm particularly concerned about some of the more sensitive ones, but I really just don't know at what nighttime temp I should be bringing them in or not worrying about it. I suppose that one advantage to going in and out is that indoors my relative humidity is around 60-70% at about 69-73 degrees whereas outside the humidity is closer to 20ish%. I also have a Majesty Palm and Hawaiian tree fern that I haul in and out every day. Advice anyone?

If the temp is staying above 50f at night there is no reason to bring them indoors

I just looked at your forecast and it looks fine day and night for bananas and palms! Some ultra tropical plants like breadfruit and red sealing wax palms will suffer in those kind of night temperatures, but everything else is pretty good right down to the 40s! They would be much happier outside at night than inside!
