The chenille plant
What do the tails look like when it is time to deadhead them. Just got mine a couple weeks ago, it's beautiful. But I don't know when to take the tails off. Mine seem to be getting a dark tinge on their outsides. I only dabble with plants occasionally. I didn't inherit my mother's green thumb.

You can dead head the flowers when they have turned brown or are looking quite withered.
Use a small snip to trim them from the plant and any leaves that are aging also can be trimmed from the plant.
