  • If it is a weed, you should look nearby you, and try to see similar leaves. To me, it seems a Lamiaceae (Labiatae): some are weeds, some aromatic plants: could you rub some leaves and smell it? [My bets are on mint] – Giacomo Catenazzi Feb 18 '19 at 8:48
  • Can you clarify what you mean when you say 'the pot had, like, 10 different seeds before'? It seems to suggest you planted 10 different individual seeds of various plants in the pot, is that what you mean? – Bamboo Feb 18 '19 at 11:12
  • sorry, it doesnt have any smell, and to Bamboo, yeah, pretty much that, I planted 10 different things hoping at least 1 would born, im bad with plants – Madison Ortiz Dominguez Feb 18 '19 at 19:26

It looks like "Pilea pumila" commonly known as clearweed. It is a member of the nettle family (Urticaceae) and has a broad native range in North America. It is usually thought of as a weed, but apparently Native Americans once used in for medicinal purposes. There are many links online about it. Here are two of them.
