Default Potted orinoco

I'm not sure if I want to plant my orinoco in the ground this year cause it's still cool, it really took off in Feb-Mar and I don't want to disturb the roots. It's currently in the greenhouse which gets much much warmer.

Has anyone had an orinoco flower in a pot? if so does it reduce its high, also my plant has been chopped back a bit during winter.

It would never survive the winter in southern Ontario.

The fruit it produces will be stunted in size, quantity, and quality of taste. In a 15-25 gallon pot I would expect it to fruit at about 5 feet above the soil level.

Thanks, Oh I know it would never survive the winter, I'm just talking about it in a pot indoors.

Yes. And for your pot indoors: The fruit it produces will be stunted in size, quantity, and quality of taste. In a 15-25 gallon pot I would expect it (the p-stem height) to fruit at about 5 feet above the soil level.
