Something has started growing with my flytrap and not sure what it is and if I would be best just leaving it. Any ideas? This is from the UK if that helps.

Thanks.

It looks like a Utricularia bisquamata.
This is a Bladderwort, another carnivorous plant.
They are very common hitchhikers, almost weedlike.
Leave it or yank it up, it will not hurt anything.
Although it may spread to your other pots.
Just my 02¢ worth.
Good growing.

Thanks! It does seem to be a Utricularia bisquamata. Did think it was some kind of Bladderwort but could never find a good example of it close up while just sprouting however after looking up "Utricularia bisquamata", I can see the resemblance and will leave them for now.
