As you can see on the pics, there is growing new stuff from my grow earth, is that bad? Do they steal nutrients or is it maybe better that its growing and help my plant? Should i remove them?

Yes you will want to remove any and all plants growing around your cannabis. Not only can they affect the root system of your cannabis plant by stealing nutrients they can also block out your roots from growing. Also the smaller plants can attract and provide a place for insects to climb up onto your cannabis plant. Make sure to remove and cleanup the area around your plant from other plants growing and dead foliage. Hope this helps, good luck on your grow.

Hi @FTZNFCKR! Well, it's all about your spot and the need for stealth. A too-clean ground is eye-catching and may look like a cannabis farm even from far away, whereas a green and flourishing ground will keep your babies incognito. Moreover it will also help retaining humidity. Finally, companion plants such as basil, mint, garlic, will reinforce your camouflage and keep bugs/caterpillars/moths away from your plants. Hope this helps, happy growing!

When I grew outdoors, I used to remove everything that sprouted close to the plants, the roots can go real deep and I prefer a "weed" free garden.
