Exclamation Leaning plants in containers for winter....

I just realized that the banana plants I brought indoors seem to be leaning funny. You know instead of being straight up in the middle of the container they’re leaning to the right. A little nervous. Will that be a problem as time goes on? They will be indoors for months. I have to wait to early to mid May to bring them outside and put back in ground. What does anyone think I should do? Will they be alright if I just leave them the way they are now? Thanks in advance...

Prop them up to keep from turning over and turn the other side to the sun light; or straighten the plant in the pot.

They are likely leaning towards the prominent light source direction, you can just periodically rotate the pots, but if you can prevent them from falling over, it really doesn't matter for their health.

Thank you! It’s such a relief to know! I was afraid that if I let them continue to lean in their pots they’d end up dead or badly damaged. I think though at some point I’ll try and fix them. Thanks for your help!
