|ID'd as Spiranthes vernalis.
Volunteer plant in AL a few miles from FL border, in sun most of the day, in slowly improving dry, sandy compacted soil reclaimed from former parking spot. Seems like a bulb, very smooth, pliable juicy-feeling stem, minuscule flowers in a spiral at the top. Leafless (currently.) The whole thing is 7-9" tall. TIA!

The less I interfere, the more balance mother nature provides.

Florida Lady's Tresses (Spiranthes brevilabris var. floridana)
Perhaps this variety Tiffany since it was so close to FL & is native here.

|Spiranthes spiralis isn't listed for Alabama.
Spiranthes vernalis .. there is some cream colour on the labellum.
This sit says "It produces 4-5 basal leaves which usually persist through flowering" but the photo they show of several plants don't look to have any, the basal leaves are large so would be seen.
It's the only one in the list which fits.
Oh gosh, I just came across your photos in the Spiranthes vernalis entry here on google! Now I see you have put an ID at the top.
