|I don't think it will take a Plano winter, but you should buy one and enjoy it through the summer. When it begins to get cold, dig it up if you've planted it in ground, or take the pot in and enjoy it indoors as a house plant. Next spring, you'll be able to tell the rest of us how to overwinter one! I just treat them as an annual because I usually over water the ones I've had. You could possibly try digging up the tuber and ....nay, just enjoy it and take a chance.|
Post your question to the Tropical forum also and see if you get a response.

|Thanks so much Sandi. I read that it doesn't like the combination on high temperatures and high humidity. The ones at HD were so tall and beautiful, so I wanted to grow one. I would love to overwinter one in the house but I don't have a lot of window space or room. I wonder if it would survive in an unheated shed? I successfully overwintered my Ice Cream banana in there. I'll post in the Tropicals forum. Thanks again Sandi.|
