Just came back from the local plant swap.
Slightly curved flat foliage, no smell. The color and texture of the bulb reminds me of Bowiea volubilis/Climbing Sea Onion. Any suggestions? Thank You!

Possibly some sort of ornithogallum as well.

Shrug! Maybe I am the proud grandmother of a few hundred Pregnant Onion babies. Sighing!

I can mark this as solved/identified. They are Pregnant Onions. They are staying inside the house now that the weather is getting cold. One plant is already making a baby. Thumbs up
