Slipped a rope right under the peduncle to support bunch. Rope is tied off to fence on 6 inch galv marine cleats. PK is leaning away from fence so this will work. If it were leaning over the fence the rope would go to 2 palm trees to the left and right of where I took this pic. Should work ok.

The reason I bring this up is I heard that heavy bunchs will break the P-stem at the location of the tie or brace unless the bunch HANGS from that apex point.

I will not say how I know this from personal experience!
