Hey I bought this plant and relized it doesn't have a tag in it, but the lady saw what I was holding said it was a pregnant onion, but I don't think so becuse I have one and I has long wide leaves. But this one has very grass like leaves I would say. Thanks!

It's an Ornithogallum (aka Albuca possibly) but no idea which one.

I agree with lzrddr. My pregnant onion has the round grassy leaves similar to chives.

You guys are all so close! The leaves on my plant are straight up. The plants that you all have mentioned have very crazy, almost everywhere. I don't know if that makes a change in the plant ID.
