Chris, I have the same problem as John, the leaves are very small and it
grows veeeryyyy slooowwlyyy...
I've tried in different places, both with a very high humidity; and
nothing. It doesn't grow and doesn't flower.
I've got my plant for one year now and it's the same size, if not smaller!
I also grew it with Neps and I grew in wet soil, too... nothing.
So, the problem is not humidity. I think it's not light, too. I don't know
what it could be.

Good growing,
