Default Christmas repotting ok?

My Dwarf Cavendish is doing great indoors. I suspect it is happy because I'm continuously getting new leaves. Bu alas, roots are in need of space. They pop up from the top and bottom. Am I correct to say that the current need trumps the no potting rule in winter?

I live in the Chicago area. Moisture is above 50% and lowest temp by the plant is around 60.

Which also brings me to another question. You can repot in winter if the plant grows year-round and does not go dormant. Is this true for a Dwarf Cavendish growing indoors under a nice strong light?

Thanks
Alex

If its warm enough, and your gentle with the transplant, it should be fine.

If you do repot slightly tease some of the soil away from the roots and place in new pot with slightly moist new soilless mix.
Do not disturb the roots too much if possible.....but you will have to.
You may do that with any activly growing banana plant.

.
Position of the stem before soilless mix is added. Kept as many roots as possible

Keep the new pot size an inch or two larger than the old size.
This photo shows a pot that is too big .
With a pot this big your chances of overwatering and damaging your plant are greater.
If it were the warm summer months you can repot like this with confidence.
