Default Variegated Musa Indoors?

Hello!

I'm new to the forum and new to bananas in general. I'm a small hobbyist looking to add an ornamental variegated banana plant to my collection. I know there are several varieties and cultivars that result in variegation. I'm not concerned about fruit, I mainly want the plant for it's structural form and foliage.

I live in Central Texas but would like an indoor plant so I can control temps and humidity requirements, plus for the aesthetic appeal.

Is there a variegated musa that would thrive as an indoor container plant?

I think the Zebrina is a good candidate for indoors but she must have a decent amount of sun for her colors to get bold and vibrant...

No banana plant will thrive kept as an indoor
plant over time.

You can grow it for a year or two.....but then it is too big to manage ......for most hobbyists.
