Weird Plants Growing from Indoor Tomato pots?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I recently started planting tomato plants indoors and once they sprouted, I noticed weird weedlike plants growing from the same pot. The seedlings will obviously get moved when they get bigger, but what about the weird weed plants? What should I do with them?

It could be just about anything!

Pull the weed out, there was weed seeds in the soil that you used.

If you don't want to get weeds in your seed starting pots you need to use a good soilless mix that has been sterilized.
