You can actually slow down the growth rate of this plant significantly by keeping it in the shade. Have mine growing under the canopy of other plants and it has remained more than manageable (more compact leaves).

Oooh, this is good! I have kind of a little "bridge" out of driftwood and while the leaves are up above it, the bulb is tucked up under it a little bit. Maybe that will have the same effect!
