Default Should I repot these ensete? or let them sleep?

I just dug these up from my shore house and brought them back home with me
now I am not sure what to do with them. Should I repot them and put them in front of a window or let them dry out and keep in the basement? If I do repot
them what type of soil and fertilzer should I use? I bought these this past summer as TC from brains botanicals as well as some other bananas. This is my first season planting bananas so any help is appreciated.
Thanks
Fran

You have three, why not try both and see what yields the best results. Since they've been dug up I don't know how well they'd re-pot right now

Small ones may not be large enough to support dormancy. I'd let the big one sleep and repot the smaller ones (at least the smallest).

You could pot them up just use regular house hold potting soil. Or store them in darkness.

I store mine in a peat out on my porch where it's cold, but not freezing. The little ones I'd just pot up though...
