Table.qza is getting bigger following filter-features


I’m trying to filter mitochondria/chloroplast from my table.qza by using:
qiime feature-table filter-features \ [ 9:40P
–i-table combined_table.qza
–m-metadata-file taxonomy-without-spaces.qza
–p-where “Taxon NOT LIKE ‘%Rickettsia%’”
–o-filtered-table feature-table-sans-mitochondria.qza

However, following this process my output table is almost multiply in its size (from ~1000kb to 2000kb). What seems to be the problem?

Thank you,

What does feature-table summarize say about sample and feature counts, before and after filtering?
