Iím hoping I might get slightly longer than September - the sun does so well for us down here and these vineries really hold the heat, someone managed to keep cavendish pushing leaves all winter on an allotment near mine last year! Time will tell if itís enough (particularly given this stem isnít particularly strong post move)
Hi tai haku
Unfortunately those days of growing huge collections are long gone. I only grow what i can manage now.
If someone managed to keep a AAA genome Cavendish growing, which requires day temperatures of 25c to do well and minimum 14c over winter months, then a ABB Orinoco shouldn't have any problems.
If the p-stem is not strong enough, you most likely will have to support it.
