Adding my experience: I had several pet poo piles created by NPC pets anywhere turn into a trash plant after a few days (especially if it was raining). Obviously, this case requires both Cats&Dogs (for pet poo) and seasons (for the rain to water the plant).

The trash plants will grow anywhere - grass, asphalt, wooden pier...

I believe this started with the hotfix patch after the "sketchpad & first-person patch" but can't be 100% sure.

 

EDIT: my installation consists of Cats&Dogs, Seasons, Spa Day and Parenthood packs + some CC clothing/hair.

Its pet poop. from any pet, yours or a stray. solution is to pick up the poop before it grows into a trash plant, or delete the trash plant once it grows. I dont see this as a bug.

A trashplant grows right in the entrance to the building, hindering any sim to leave the apartment lot and weirdly they cant go to their homes even if they live in the apartment nextdoor. i cant go to build mode and just delet it because the game doesn't alow me to edit outide the lot/apartment. and i cant splice it to death because i cant even get down to splice it. Also every sim that comes to my apartment can't leave. Using another family member to go to any other lot on the neighborhood causes the plant to vanish from existence, thus making it impossible to get rid of it by this method. calling anybody to my house they apear instantly out of the elevator thus making it also impossible to deal with this plant.

@Turzeen  I've merged your post into this thread, since it looks like the same issue.

Champion
Try to turn testingcheats on, shift click on the ground outside and teleport out to destroy the plant with splicing from the outside.
