How long have you had this Mike? The information I dug up indicates a height of 3 to 4 inches. Is that your experience?

I've had it a couple of years. 3-4 in is just about right, with the bloom an inch or 2 taller.

Thanks Mike. I'd like to try this one. Any tips on culture? Fine orchid mix OK? Sorry for all the questions but info. is scarce. Green Grin! Does part shade sound right? How often do you fertilize?

I actually grow it in MG potting soil right out of the bag. The full size blooming tubers are about the size of a grape, so I'm a little cautious about letting it get too dry.
Mine is on the east side of the house and gets about 2 hrs of morning sun, then its pretty bright all day. I think the hot afternoon sun would fry them. I fertilize once a month or so. During the dormant period I kept some completely dry and some I gave a little water once a month --both were fine.
