Hi everyone,

I have an interesting weed that popped up out of an empty pot. It's a bit odd to me as I do not see in anywhere in the vicinity. This is in San Francisco, California. It's very narrow, fast growing, and has pointy leaves that are clustered closely around a green stem.

The plant is currently about 4 feet tall, and growing rapidly.

Can anyone help identify it?
