Mine seem to be weaker since they bloomed. It worries me so I propped them to be safe. They have plenty time to fill so I hope they fill ok. I'm going to grow the real Goldfinger beside it if I ever get one. I would like to see the differences also. They are doing great so far. The taller plants flower is a lot bigger than the first.

I'm sure they are in the tropics. Also some experts say these Agristarts TC goldfingers are different than the real Goldfinger from TARS. I'm happy to get 6-7' here. Easy to wrap during winter. My Manzano bloom is close to 14'. That is pretty tall for my manzanos. I find most of my plants are a few feet smaller than in the tropics.

Makes sense.
I know what you mean about wrapping in the winter. My dwarf Orinoco at 5.5' was a breeze for a frost blanket. Hoping it will bloom maybe next year

Taylor, my first generation Goldfinger stem bloomed at about 6 feet 9 inches tall. The bunch though was excellent quality with about 10 hands. The pup stems that followed grew to about 10 to 11 feet before the flower emerged. I may not even have the real Goldfinger though. Next time I will take a picture of the bud if I do not forget.
