Hypoxis decumbens

Hypoxis decumbens is a grassy plant that bears small, brilliant yellow flowers. It is easily grown from seed and the plant in the above image was grown to full maturity in a small 2-inch (5-cm) plastic cup in an east-facing window.

It is native throughout a very wide range in Mexico, Central America, the Greater and Lesser Antilles, and South America.
