Joy When to move my bananas back outside

I have about 13 bananas I have in 50 gallon pots that I kept in my sunroom over the winter and am just curious when it would be safe to take them outside. I live in washington state in zone 8, our temperatures have been in the low 60's with lows at night in the mid 40's. The species I will be taking out include Ice cream (8.5' tall, cut down from 11' to fit in the sunroom), Dwarf namwah (7' tall and one about 5' tall), Grain Nain (7' tall), Orinocco (6' tall), Double mahoi (4' tall), and several Dwarf and super dwarf cavendishes that I will leave inside. All of these bananas are about 2-3 years old. We had a nice surprise the past 2-3 days with highs in the 80's but we are suppose to go back down to highs in 61-65F. The heat and humidity in the sunroom really woke things up and now some of the nanas are growing and hitting the ceiling and bending the leafs. Just want to get things growing but don't want to kill my hard work. Thanks in advance.

If you said upper 40's I'd say its all good since they are getting warmer temps during the day. All your ABB's should be good regardless.. I'd just keep them where the cold and wind both can't get them if that's possible I'd take out the GN too.. :^)

Checked the 10 day weather report and it is suppose to stay up in the 70's by the end of the 10 days so I figured what the heck and took the big boys outside today. I even got gutsy enough and took a 5' pup off of my large Ice cream went easier then I thought we will see how it grows.

Everything is doing good except the large Ice Cream Pup I took off. All of the leafs have turned yellow and folded down, but the main stalk is still solid I will just leave it alone for a while and see what happens. Pictures to follow soon.

Here are some pictures of some of my bananas after being outside for two weeks. The last picture is my orrinoco in the back and the Ice cream pup that I separated from The larger parent in on of the first pictures.

I figured as much, but was always hopeful. It has just been fun doing something my friends said I could't do. My girls love them and call our sunroom the jungle when all of the bananas are inside.
