I found these little bulbs while digging up the yard to start a garden and set some bulbs I found aside. Next thing I knew it was a couple weeks later and I checked them to see it they were alive and they sprouted! No water or anything. I'm just curious if anyone has any idea of what it could be? Thank you in advance!

Hi Ilareo, Welcome!

I'm not certain but it reminds me of Chinese Crown Orchid (Eulophia graminea) My sister found one in her yard last year and someone here identified it for me. I'm in Florida and they are considered invasive here.

Before we go orchid crazy, we need to know where you live. Smiling

So I'll guess that isn't a hyacinth bulb...

Agree, that's definitely Eulophia graminea, they are kind of invasive.
