The seed pods are like little round balls. Mine has went to seed a couple years in a row. We have teeny tiny ants up to giant ones here in Florida. That is also why we have a guy come spray outside about every 2-3 months depending on how bad they get. I had never knew aloe flowered until I saw ours go into spike awhile back. Ours blooms out Orange instead of Yellow, but it as intense as the yellow. You can see if for a long ways.
