    gibbosa is from vietnam and thailandica from...well easy to guess!
    these separation/clarification between the two species was done in 2009 by Olaf Gruss, a german taxonomist. ( by googling gibbosa you won't find the information easely, this is how internet goes! same with people, gibbosa is clearly, for a lot of people what must be called thailandica now)

    so i pick this picture from Olaf for educationnal purpose:

    Pavel, the mass of the plant is about 6 inches, though several of the roots reach further down than that. It's about 3 inches wide, thought again, some of the roots reach further than that. When I stacked another piece of tree fern bark on it, I went out about an inch and a half on both sides and not much length on the vertical side of it. Hope that answers your question, if not just ask again and I'll do my best to answer you. Thanks

    Bruce when I answered your post on the Max. tenufolia, I was somehow thinking you had posted that on this thread. Anyway thanks to you and malani for the kind words. It's a fun little mini Phal species that there seems to be some issues with what it is called. Have a great day
