I am very new here and absolutely new to gardening.
I brought home a potted plant from a yard sale.It is a very small plant that looked like grass.However the blades are not flat but like a half cut pipe with hollow middle and raised sides(sorry this is the best I can do).The blades are dark green in color.I repotted it as the pot it was in was cracking and I saw that it had bulbs underneath in which a lot of thin white roots are present - hundreds of roots actually.
Can you tell me what kind of plant is this - will it flower or should I just throw it away?

Nooo, don't throw it away! *lol*

I don't know just what your plant might be, someone else might recognize it by description,
or, if you could post a photo it might be something that we would know on sight.
But even if not, it's always fun to wait and watch for the surprise "AHA" moment.

I will add, that most all bulbs do bloom in some form or other,
in fact, I can't think of any that don't, just offhand.

And WELCOME to the wonderful world of gardening and to The Stew.

Hi Tina,

A photo would be excellent if you could possibly muster one up. I have an image in my head of what it looks like but my image is quite messed up Smile

I think if and when it blooms you it would be easier to ID but if you can get a photo we may even ID before then.

Welcome to GardenStew!

But it better bloom.
Anyway, I will wait for it to either bloom or die.

It would probably help to know what area you are in, I mean, we have members from Scotland to Louisiana and the plants we grow can vary alot! Could be garlic, could be grape-hyacinth, could be fun to just find out!
