plants growing in laundry room


My laundry room is on top of a concrete slab (used to be a porch from what I can tell). In the corner, there is a plant growing through the slab and up the wall. What's the best way to remove this/keep it from coming back? I'm already drooling over the fact that there may be water behind the drywall.

More likly it's rooted outside and has grown up under the siding and into the house.
Spray some total vegatation killer around the outside of the house.

Spray the area down with Roundup, then either use Caulk, or the vinyl concrete sealer from Sakrete, that comes in half quart bottles, that you can squeeze the mix after shaking, to seal the area. Also address from the outside with caulk, after inspecting for any water damage, and fixing.
