I have an avocado tree planted in a pot but I have noticed lots of stalks growing up around it. I have attached some pictures which were taken after I pulled at them (sorry). They seem to be coming up from the really dense root system that you can see.
Does anyone know what they are and how to get rid of them?
Or are the part of the avocado tree?
Do the roots belong to them or the avocado tree?
The tree is young - only 3-4 years old.

Nothing to worry about, some kind of succulent seeds sprouting, let one of them grow to get a good look at it.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

It reminds me a bit of Whisk Fern (Psilotum nudum) but that's just a wild guess at the current stage of growth.
