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.
The Orinoco and namwah flew through last winter. In a different greenhouse this year though so will be interesting (concerning) to see how we go.
In terms of strength Iím most worried about it having the strength to fill out fruit. I was very confident they were fruiting size but having moved them Iím pretty sure I weakened the pstem a lot by removing green leaves etc for the move
