    I was just cleaning up some of my Dendrochilum. I think of them as pretty compact compared to most other genera. 6"-8" height on the folliage and the spikes are lower than the tops of the leaves.
    I only have experience with a half dozen of the most common species.

    There are also quite a few species in the 2.5 to 4" height range.

    The wenzelii is not that tall either. Mine is about 8" tall and it is a very compact species.
