    No worries, lol. The tray is too shallow (only about .5" of soil) to support any cp's other than perhaps utricularia, but the compost is probably too rich for them as well. I like the little clover that's sprouting though. Wouldn't mind seeing a few more of those.

    You will soon have a lot of this "clover" its Oxalis corniculata. A very beatiful weed. It grows soon everywhere. Nice yellow flowers and tiny jumping seeds in great distances.
    I dont know anyone who got rid of it.

    I think I remember in interview with Alec Baldwin about someone who did/does that to his house in the Hamptons.

    Beautiful indeed, however a never ending plague. I think the seed pods are explosive, and the younglings invasive.
    Kill/remove that clover now, or forever suffer its prolific curse

    I don't think it will matter much in the long-run, considering there's no actual depth to the pot. The roots can run anywhere from 3/8"-1/2" before they bottom-out on impermeable plastic.

    It's coming along nicely, btw. When I'm able to, I'll get some update pics if the progress is sufficient enough.

    If you have no other plants in the same room it will take some time. It will apear then at first somewhere outside, transported on your shoes. They need next to no soil at all. Maybe the dirt under your fingernails is enough to flower with. They just get smaller. Cute little plants the size of your fingernails are able to flower and set seed. The capsules explode and spread their load up to more than an meter away. The seeds are sticky.
    But you are right on the long run its victory is unavoidable, so why worry.
