My potted ensete plants refuse to go dormant in my unlit, unheated utility room!

Kevin, kinda makes you wish you didn't chop them off? If that keeps up you'll have nice sized naners in spring. My two are still in pots inside a heated and lit building. I hope they continue to grow. Last year my Siam Ruby died inside.

Thanks, chadec. I just love how tolerant these ensete are with abuse. I just stick them in the basement and ignore them until Spring. They always come back as though nothing ever happened to them.
