Default How tall is the pstem for Orinoco vs Dwarf Orinoco

I have what I am pretty sure is Orinoco, I see a lot of different descriptions of the height, but they dont clarify if its with the leaves. What is the usual Pstem height for a Dwarf Orinoco, my Orinoco Pstem is about 8 to 9 feet.

You dont have the dwarf. I believe stem height is 6-8' with the dwarf, also the leaf petioles are shorter and closer together.
