|I was told when I bought my Nageliella to A. never cut off those dead looking spikes, and B. it's a hummingbird magnet. Good advice! This plant has 16 spikes on it (I had to count several times) and every one looks like this . I've only caught one hummer on it, due to the location.|
Gerberara Snow ballet had two blooms that didn't drop, so I was curious, and watched the ants. The hummers use it for a perch, so I don't know who the guilty party is, but it had two seed pods developing. I cut them off and sliced one open to make sure.
Lousy pics but blame the breezes and light.

|Hummingbirds on the Nageliella? How sweet is that!! I have to pay attention to my plant. |
I have some spikes on mine which are surely several years old and they are still blooming. Neat plant for sure, Carol!

|Thanks! I'm just hoping all those seed pods don't make it think it has done it's duty...and die. I did cut off three or four spike that showed no signs of blooms this year, and it crossed my mind that those may have been the ones that set seeds last year.|
