28in from a 400 watt halide in a tight reflector, that's how lol.
That explains tight growth and temperature control, I assume you have good air movement, how are you controlling humidity?

I have a piezoelectric humidifier. Humidity is usually around 65%, though I bump it up to 80-something when sanderianum hybrids are blooming.

Did I miss the name of this clone? Those karate-kid laterals are astonishing to me. All the ones I have seen hang DOWN. I’ll post a photo of mine today, on its 8th flower from the same spike. If you sold a division of this baby I’d sure be into it.
I haven't named it yet. The petals do curve downward somewhat, but not as much as most clones I have seen.

What is a piezoelectric humidifier?
