Hi, apparently seeds of a plant had fallen into this pot and now it is full of the plant. I let the plant grow but it has recently started to attract whiteflies. I am now wondering if it is worth to keep it. I would appreciate any help for identifying this plant.

Salpiglossis, perhaps.

If the foliage is aromatic it could be Salad Rocket.

Check with images of Dysphania ambrosioides.

Thanks for your replies. I don't think it is Salpiglossis or Dysphania, though. And after Yorkshirelass's message I took a bite of a leaf and it is not arugula, either (it doesn't have any taste or flavor).
So, the mystery continues. Sad

China Asters, Callistephus chinensis maybe?
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...
