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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
