The majority of plants at pacific are overpriced. If you are going to overprice something at least sell it in the highest quality possible. That just looks like a string of something in the picture.

Looks more like these plant bits tagged along to the plant OP bought. Happens often in a tank with many plants. Doubt that little is anything sold.

spiro doesn't change in thickness like that plant does, it's thin strands that are the same size throughout

Utricularia Gibba - Your worst enemy if you have a nice carpet of HC or anything for that matter. This thing becomes a BIG PROBLEM very fast!

I wouldn't necessarily throw the HC away. I would inspect the pots thoroughly. Can you quarantine, have a spare tank?
If you bring them back to pacific they might let you trade for fish or something.

PS. i might be reading the post wrong but did you buy the utricularia shown in the photos or was it already invading the HC pots?

All plants regardless of source should warrant inspection. Many types of hitchhikers can be removed physically or eliminated through a drip.

Its unfortunate but retail shops have high turn over and these often come as-is from the wholesaler into their tanks. Pacific has been good about compensation with my own mixed experiences. I'm sure you can speak with them as they are pretty good at taking care of their customers.

if you're going to keep it, quarantine it and be super thorough on removal and post searches. the smalled of pieces can replicate itself in a matter of a day or two, into a giant mass of hell spawn.

this is what it would look like in about two weeks time:
