Is this new Monstera growth or some kind of weed/other plant?
I repotted my Monstera about a month ago and I've noticed these little green things growing - they don't really look like weeds and I'm not sure what else they could be, unless these are baby Monstera leaves? It's hard to find photos of new growth online - the plant itself has 2 big new leaves on the way so seems happy. Should I pull these out or leave them?

I have those too from time to time, wether indoors or outdoors. They’re weeds.
I ageee with @BeesZenGarden I’ve had that in my Monstera adansonii it just died πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ
@ABCD as in your Monstera died, or the weeds?? I've just pulled them, thanks and to @BeesZenGarden too! Glad to hear I'm not the only one who got them 🀣
@AlexAssassin94 The weed died my adansonii is happy
Honestly I think they’re harmless but I’ve never let them grow long enough to see! Lol And btw, I don’t have a monstera (not cat friendly, sigh…). Those little things are not picky, they grow in every pot!… πŸ˜‚
@BeesZenGarden huge relief 😻
They're definitely weeds! I've gotten some time to time in a few of my other planty friends!
I would pull them out. No need to keep them there! 😁
Side note- looks to me like you have new aerial root growth coming out of the stalk pictured! If you have two new leaves- that's new growth, too!
I don't think they necessarily sprout like that from the soil with the mother plant (I could be wrong though) I personally have never seen it!
Happy growing! πŸŒ±πŸ’š
