    That grass stuff is a pest but if you snag it when it's small and the roots haven't had a chance to wind their way deep into the pot it's easier to be rid of it for a longer period of time. I use feeding tongs/forceps to pluck it out as soon as I see any sign of it. Don't let it grow if you can because it seems like it can come back from it's roots.

    It also isn't good for your CP's roots especially since they are in an enclosed root area (a pot) not the ground.
