My most common weed in my CP pots is Erica or Calluna
(known as Heather over here). I assume these were
residents of wherever the peat came from. They are
not a nuisance - if one grows too big that I can't
pull it up without disturbing the CP, then I just
cut it off at ground level. I have even transplanted
some to grow and flower separately. I was slightly
surprised that these seem happy in a water tray along
with CP (and no plant food) - I had assumed that they
normally grew in dryish conditions.
