|Beautiful plant! Looks like you're doing a fine job with its care.|
First thing I noticed is it could use a bit bigger of a pot. You can also stake it with some bamboo stakes or whatever you can find. Tie it to the stakes loosely with some soft material.

| Damian. In 'real life' this would become a huge tree so it will be happy in a bigger pot, as Lee Anne said.|
I understand it might become a problem to move it in and out of the greenhouse in which case you can always prune it back. It is almost impossible to kill one of these!
