I just pulled one of these out of my long fiber sphagnum moss next to my drosera. Seems I find a lot of them. Maybe someone else will tell us definitively, but it resembles a grass. Does yours look like this ?

Yep, it is a weed. I am constantly pulling them from my LSF pots. It seems some batches of moss are weedier than others.

Those grass-looking weeds can eventually have a large tough root system. I had some in a VFT pot from Lowe's that I let get too big. It was a pain untangling it from the flytrap roots. It's good to pull those weeds early.
