Unknown plant with suction cups?

GawenJuly 4, 2011

I noticed this plant in my potted plant garden a fews days ago. I see that it is now in two of my pots; one in my oriental lily and one in a small tree that I think a squirrel planted. Each of these plants has six leaves which are somewhat heart shaped, have wavy edges, a coarse hair that lays flat against the leaves, and circles in the middle of most leaves which are upraised and empty... they really look like suction cups! No type of stem or flower has emerged, and plants lay almost perfectly against the dirt. Does anyone have any idea what these things are?

Liverwort. Better start removing it now!

Sure enough. After reading more on it, I've decided I don't want to continue my relationship with Liverwort :) Thanks for the advice!
