New plant sprouting from clone?


Well-Known Member
Hey guys, my buddy recently purchased 4 clones. Today he checked on them and found a sprouting weed plant! I confirmed it was a weed plant. I asked if it had a seed shell anywhere next to the seedling and there was not. Is it possible that a new plant can sprout off of the roots? I have seen this one other time on here and everyone was baffled by it. I told him to remove it from the soil gently and replant it and he has done so. My question is, is it possible for a weed plant to sprout off of the roots? Or did the guy who sold the clones accidentally drop a seed into the soil?

The seedling that emerged looked like this.20D21F7E-4463-4453-AF5B-9C797F87D110.gif
