Here’s a small Phalaenopsis species that looks like a small bee with highly marked dark bands over a sunny yellow flower. NS 1.2 cm.

Though this one plant is 20 cm in total width (with a flower spike of 14 cm), I’ve seen larger plants over 35 cm and taller inflorescences up to 40 cm on well grown specimens.

Not the easiest to grow but I will still try (killed a few already in my career lol).
