How did this happen to my plant?

I have a tropical house plant that I've had for about 3 years now and it has suddenly grown several 3 leaf clovers in the same pot it is planted in. I repot it about twice a year and always use miracle grow house plant soil. I never use regular dirt or anything from outside so how the heck did I get clovers in my house plant? Don't you think this is a little strange?.

Oh that is a weird one! I guess that bag of soil wasn't very sterilized was it? I've never experienced that before but I have heard of it.

I've had things like this happen before, too...i think that even using potting soil, sometimes a seed gets mixed in with it unintentionally. I guess it can happen, i've seen sticks and other things in bagged potting soil before.

Really? I thought the bagged soil was supposed to be free of this? I might as well get it out of my back yard.
