Default Pots indoors for winter?

I'm about to jump elbows deep into this. Trying to find out as much as I can ahead of time.
Once the potted plant comes indoors for winter(northeast)
Do I cut the leaves or do I have to dedicate a whole room for these really long leaves, or are they not as long as I think they will be

I would leave them on. Some things to know after bringing them in is don't over water that's very important and the easiest way to kill it indoors.let it get dry before watering again and don't water it until the water runs out the bottom.Watch for mites they love the dry indoor heat. Wiping leaves with soapy water helps especially on the underside of the leaves and the midrib. Place them next to a sunny window. They really won't grow to much inside unless you have a lot of light so all your doing is maintaining them until next spring.
What variety are you growing?

Wing..
Have you checked out any vids on youtube about growing bananas indoors under grow lights yet?

There are a lot of choices to choose from just pick one that fits your budget.

Most of them are pretty accurate
When plants are smallish they are easy to manage.

I cut my leaves in half to make them fit the space.
