Polystachya pubescens is a small, epiphytic orchid native to South Africa. The small, pyriform pseudobulbs will reach about 4 inches (10 cm) tall bearing 3-4 leaves of unequal length. It is very easy to grow, I have it in bark mix. I water it often when in growth but keep it fairly dry in the winter.

That is cute!

I have a Polystachya pubescens that's in spike. I don't think mine is as bright a yellow as is yours.

Beautiful. They are getting rather scarce, as it is one of the species that is used as 'muti' (african medicines) by local witchdoctors.
