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.
