Hello cheetos, and happy Friday!

Welcome back to the Good To Grow site, and thanks for being here.

Our beloved Experts on are on a much-deserved holiday break, so let’s admire their adorableness:

 

And then move on to the plant puzzler:

???Real or Fake???

Last week, I asked if this succulent was real or fake:

Good To Grow, Liza's photos, real or fake plant puzzler

Let’s see how you answered:

Claude from Random Rants and Prickly Plants wrote, “Real. Echiveria, I think.”

Then he added, “Oh-di-lay-ee-ay”

(Haha, that made me laugh!)

Martha from Plowing Through Life wrote, “It looks real. And so soft.”

Ivy from Letters and Leaves wrote, “Yup, real.”

Tom from Midwestern Jungle wrote, “Real”

That’s four votes real, zero votes fake.

What’s the correct answer? Let’s take a wider view:

Dangit! I don’t have a wider view photo. I thought I did but I was incorrect.

So you’ll have to take my word for it when I tell you that it was REAL!

Real plants are always more beautiful and more interesting than fake plants. You guys all nailed it. Well played! Congratulations!

Claude, you speedster, you multi-winning fool, you came in first again. Go on with your bad self! For being first with the correct answer, this week you’ve earned the following epithet: “Fast as Lightning, Quicker than a Race Car, More Crafty than the Speed of Sound, More Planty than Broccoli and Overall Grand Champion of the Houseplant Blog Universe and Beyond.”

You should introduce yourself as Claude Fast as Lightning, Quicker than a Race Car, More Crafty than the Speed of Sound, More Planty than Broccoli and Overall Grand Champion of the Houseplant Blog Universe and Beyond. It won’t be weird at all!

For being so speedy, you also get to multiply all the prizes by leftover turkey. Congrats again!

Ooh, sorry about that photo quality – not! Hopefully it’s fuzzy enough so that I can finally trick you!
