Default Musa icecream

I have musa icecrea. That i have grown indoors under a light and heat mat in a 18 inch pot. I live in a zone 9a wnd was wondering what to do now that it may start to get cold. I want to plant it outside but I think it is too late in the season. Do I wait for spring? Any care tips would be helpful. It is currently 5 feet tall 4 inches tall from the bottom of the pot.

I would wait until spring, right now it will slow in growth or go dormant. The roots won't be doing much right now, if it's ok where it is I'd wait.
