The gap between high mm-wave band and far infrared is today a hot topic (0.1-10THz)!
Usually, if you have a single antenna, lens is the approach you should go for in case you need high-directivity antenna. One of (many) problems is the reflection on the lens-air interface.

As an additional remark, the SRD regulations don't allow either a PA or a higher directivity antenna in this band. But the legal aspect may be irrelevant for a single application.

I am a bit confused about the notion of partial directivity and gain.
According to textbooks and papers the total directivity is defined as the sum of the partial directivities (the same for gain).
But the common practice to get the sum of two orthogonal vectors is to take the vector sum. i.e. Instead of G = G_phi + G_theta, shoul

With any antenna, gain equals directivity minus loss. Some antennas are resonant and should be tuned for the best matching at a specified frequency (s11 >10 dB). Wideband antennas are considered if their S11 is poorer over the band width.
Low S11 means less RF power supplied from a transmitter is radiated, also in a (...)

If we consider lambda/2 dipole for example, it has directivity 2.15 dBi.
Monopole with infinite ground causes radiating only to upper half space, so that directivity of monopole=directivity of relevant dipole+3dB
In our case of lambda/2 dipole, its counterpart is lambda/4 monopole with D=2.15dBi+3dB=5.15dBi

Second, the basic methods for measuring the far-field radiation patterns, the gain, the directivity, the radiation efficiency, the impedance and the polarization are discussed.

Gain/directivity ratio was the first thing I looked at and as expected in this scenario, it is greater than one. By the way , seeding the mesh in the airbox to λ0/6 also did not help.

your question says "... how big is good enough?" and I ask you, good enough for what?. Be aware that the ground plane size gives you an additional degree of freedom, and making it larger or smaller you can control the antenna beamwidth, and therefore the directivity.
