profligate seed-droppers

Which species do you grow that seed themselves into nearby pots?

I was so pleased to see the first flower stalk emerging on Onixotis stricta, (now changed to Wurmbea) from Silverhill seeds sown in 2009.  It has now developed enough that I can see the bumps of flowerbuds.  Oh, oh. Very familiar looking, and when it opens, it is going to reveal itself as Nerine undulatus.  

And the healthy plants in my pots of Gladiolus arcuatus and G. maculatus are the same nerine.  I do like the nerine, but I need to pay attention to where its tall stems bend over and drop seeds.
