I pulled a foot long, living plant out of my bathroom drain tonight! What did this?

My top suspect is the Glamglow but in also wondering about the Origins black clay mask. I'm thankful that this particular incident was so easily solved but would like to prevent future issues.

Re: I pulled a foot long, living plant out of my bathroom drain tonight! What did this?

I think a little vinegar will help prevent this, as the acidity will help keep anything from growing without being too harsh on your plumbing.  (Bleach and drain-o are super harsh, and probably way too strong for what you're dealing with.)  

 

Also, that would kind of freak me out a little bit!

Scary....and I am a FAITHFUL GLAMGLOW BLACK user......

I live in the country, just what I need in my septic tanks...... I will be keeping my eyes open or just simply using the upstairs bathroom sink on my side.

Re: I pulled a foot long, living plant out of my bathroom drain tonight! What did this?

I threw it out before I thought of taking a picture. (I was concerned it would want to be called Audrey and eat all my makeup.) This picture shows the bottom half of the plant and I was also able to find one of the leaves.image.jpg

I cant even tell you how much I love "I was concerned it would want to be called Audrey and eat all my makeup." Like the highlight of my month I swear.

FEED ME SEYMOUR!!!!!!!!!

Re: I pulled a foot long, living plant out of my bathroom drain tonight! What did this?

It looks like a bean/pea family plant sprout, those "leaves" are cotyledons. Do you have any plants growing around your place like mimosa trees, alfafa, etc? I wouldn't blame the GlamGlow mask as the gritty particles in there are too small to be a viable seed. I think the seed that caused this was fairly large, think chia or sesame seed size.

Re: I pulled a foot long, living plant out of my bathroom drain tonight! What did this?

That's some kind of bean, the dried ones you get in the store will sprout quite easily so if you were cooking and got one caught in a shirt cuff and then washed your hands or something it could happen.

 

I'd be thrilled to find this is my drain compared to what I usually find.  I'm convinced my husband is half yeti and shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh balding.  I'm the one that has to take the cover off the shower drain and snake that bugger once a month.  Although last time I'd swear I found a tribble in there.

OMG, the tribbles!!!!!

Re: I pulled a foot long, living plant out of my bathroom drain tonight! What did this?

That is truly bizarre!

Re: I pulled a foot long, living plant out of my bathroom drain tonight! What did this?

Oh my !!!! Would never have thought a mask would, could, or might be the culprit, my first thought would be a cracked pipe. hopefully you find the culprit to this issue and no one gets ahold of and eats anyones makeup Smiley Happy Let the plant hunting begin!!!

A cracked pipe was my first thought too.  When I was a kid we lived in an old house where my parents had to have a plumber come out yearly due to plants/tree roots growing into the pipes.  It's either that or simply a mass amount of build-up that would allow a plant to take root and grow like that.

Re: I pulled a foot long, living plant out of my bathroom drain tonight! What did this?

I had this happen before. I had one of those eye pillow things filled with beads, and it broke. It broke over a towel and so I just threw it and shook the towel in the tub ran some water and good to go..Until my mother saw it and looked at the broken mask in the trash and said oh weird, these are SEEDS. My tub was worse off than that and still to this day has a plant smell when you run really hot water. I used one of those hair remover things and scrapped the heck out of the drain. 

Re: I pulled a foot long, living plant out of my bathroom drain tonight! What did this?

Holy cow I will definately have to be much more viligant of what I throw down the drains, hmmmm thats crazy!!!!

Re: I pulled a foot long, living plant out of my bathroom drain tonight! What did this?

I have been a bit worried about that darn Glamglow mask clogging up the drains in the bathroom.  After hearing of your plant, I think I am going to have to wash it off my face in the kitchen over the garbage disposal!  

Re: I pulled a foot long, living plant out of my bathroom drain tonight! What did this?

Don't.  Pumice and garbage disposals don't get along.

Re: I pulled a foot long, living plant out of my bathroom drain tonight! What did this?

creepy, now I'm paranoid..... @.@

Re: I pulled a foot long, living plant out of my bathroom drain tonight! What did this?

OMG! That's totally freaky! I hate pulling my own hair out of the drain, nevermind a living plant.  I'm going to have to start washing my face masks off outside, with the hose!

Re: I pulled a foot long, living plant out of my bathroom drain tonight! What did this?

The things we do to look pretty!
