A problem with If node

I'm trying to emit particles from other particles. That works well enough. Then I wanted to add an If node based on the normalized age so the particles are emitted only after a certain point in the normalized age. You can see the graph here:


This didn't work and, as you can see by the red simulate node, it gives me this error:


The error appears when I connect the get normalized age into the greater node. So what could be the problem? I'm obviously missing something.

If you want to do that

use vary_source_property
