    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?

    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.

    Alright, thank you. This was a black soil, potting aoil and wild soil mix.
