My grandson came over about 4 weeks ago and gave me this little pot with (what I had thought was) grass. It was under 1/4" tall at the time. Anyway, I thought it was cute of him (he's 6) I put it in a big sunny wimdow, watered it & It began to grow. As it got bigger we could see it was not grass. My son noticed little bulbs right at the top. Ok, we then thougt it was a bunch of baby onions. But my hubby says onipns always smell like onions, and there is no detectable oder of onion or anything else. So can someone tell me what I have a pot of? Thank You! sorry, had to resize them first.

Grape Hyacinth looks a lot like grass when it is very young...

Possibly some type of ornithogalum species? Maybe O. umbellatum? Just a guess.

Those flat blades make me think Zephyranthes also. If so, they need more water.

I had to look up that Zephyranthes as I was not familar with it. I have no idea where he even got seeds for rainlilies. I never had any. When he brought them in & I just thought they wete just a pot of grass. I know the green pit had been laying out in the yard empty. When I asked him where he got the plants from. He just made a vague reference to out under my picnick table right out in front of my house. I didn't want to hurt his feelings. So I just dropped the subject.
Yesyerday I asked him to help me transplant them
They seemed like they wete getting over crowded in that little pot. Still thinking them to be onions we transplanted them inro a raised bed in my unheated greenhouse. Sorta like a cold frame. We did water them Rolling on the floor laughing Might be fun to see what they do. I tip my hat to you.
Happy Gardening :-)
