They are one of the least hardy Ensete, coming from Thailand, but have overwintered dry and min 15C.
Best regards

They would grow on a sunny windowsill but keep fairly dry as it would not be growing vigorously.

My young one was damaged in transit before I got it. It has spent the last two months on gentle bottom heat in the greenhouse recovering. I think it will be staying there throughout the winter.
