Ortho Hydrogen is not more stable than para hydrogen at all temperatures.

At higher temperatures, ortho form is more stable (ortho:para=3:1)

At lower temperatures, para form is more stable.

Moreover, the maximum % of ortho form is 75%. 100% pure ortho form can never be obtained; while 100% pure para form is obtained at about 20K.

Therefore, the stability varies with temperature.
