Yes, just pot them on like you would any other plant. I would be sure to not pot them into anything too big yet, and use a palm or cactus mix, or add coarse sand to your usual potting soil. Give them lots of your favorite form of nitrogen (I would use Organic Fish Emulsion), and you are good to go for a while. They will grow fast if kept watered (never let them dry out), warm (over 60F), and with ample light. You may need some grow lights to keep them happy over the winter.

At the same time, not soggy wet. I melted a banana by overwatering.
