What is this in my new tank?

I just started this new tank a few days ago and started cycling it. Recently added aquasoil and a few plants (after weeks of quarantine and a bleach dip). The soil has settled today but some of the particles have stayed floating. I just saw this today floating among the particles. It looks like it was part of the soil but it’s like growing roots or something.
Any clue what this could be? Could aquasoil accidentally bring seeds of some kind?

It's a sprout of some kind. What exactly... no idea. Can't even tell whether it's an aquatic or a terrestrial plant. Put it in a pot or a glas of water and wait and see what happens.

It can even have been on you and your clothes and fallen into the tank, so it can come from anywhere.

it looks like a water lily seed to me. You can search " water lily sprouting" on google and you will find it almost similar to what you have.

Yea can’t tell if aquatic either, the sprout keeps getting noticeably larger every few hours. I wonder if I just leave it in the tank what will happen. Do you think I should do that or move it like you mentioned?

I can’t tell much on google images but it seems like water lily seeds are a lot bigger than the seed in my tank. The seed in the tank is the same size and looks about the same as the aquasoil pellets. Maybe it’s a dwarf lily? No clue. But if it is a water lily, that would be so cool! Free plants!
