Default Musa Puspanjaliae

I have just bought a small Musa Puspanjaliae from eBay, I couldn't resist such a different species. Doing some research it seems to come from North East India, similar to Cheesemanii and Veluntina to name a few. And so I assume is a similar hardiness as these two.

Does anyone on here have any experience with this relatively new species?

It has survived the winter and in active growth. It is only about 30cm/1ft tall and in a pot outside. It was a very cold winter here, didn't go below -3 degrees Celsius, but the duration of cold, perhaps not going above 3 degrees for 5 or so days consecutively from late Dec to early Feb. My unprotected sikkimensis 'red tiger' was cut almost right back and I have lost a lot of height of my cheesmanii which had some fleece wrapped around it. So I think it is a potentially hardy Musa species.
Will update on growth over this summer
