I noticed numerous number of this plant seedling growing from my LFSM beside my N. ampullaria.
I suspect the seeds/spores were already in the LFSM in the first place.
Anyone knows what this might be and experience this before in your LFSM? Any harm?

It grows on any media apparently. I have them on my pot of 90% perlite 10% organic soil as well haha. I regularly weed them away from my garden, the surface of which is garden sand.

Even grown in pure charcoal. Quite invasive!

This weed multiplies super fast and is difficult to eradicate completely. It can grow on any media. If your main plant is a large established vigorously growing mature plant, having this weed in the same pot won't pose much problem. If the plant concerned is small and delicate, the weed may even overtake the whole pot eventually and cause the main plant in the pot to decline. I will remove this weed from my nepenthes pot.
