This is growing in a pot with another plant of mine over the past month and I'd like to know what it is. I don't think it's a weed! It's very small right now, whatever it is. Any ideas?

Gently pinch a leaflet. If it smells like weird peanut butter then it's Ailanthus - the tree from hell. That's what it looks like to me.

Thanks, cpp gardener. Sorry for the delayed response but I think you're right. I couldn't tell if it smelled like peanut butter but it was growing pretty quickly and making a perfect shade canopy for a large ant mound that made it's way into the pot. Plus I read the plant can be invasive so I decided to pull it.
