Q.Dwarf Banana Tree Roots Are Coming To The Surface And Poking Out Of The Dirt.

I’ve had this plant outside in my yard in FL and it’s never really done well at all. Should I maybe dig it up and just keep it in a pot? It’s still really small. Now the roots are coming to the surface and poking out. Advise me please on what to do.
