Hello Decemberists, and happy Friday!

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

Yay for Friday!

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

 

And then move on to the plant puzzler:

???Real or Fake???

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

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

Let’s see how you answered:

Ivynettle from Letters and Leaves wrote, “So fake it hurts to look at it.”

Claude from Random Rants and Prickly Plants wrote, “That’s definitely fake. And i would have won again except I was in a turkey induced coma all day yesterday.”

That’s two votes fake, zero votes real.

What’s the correct answer? Let’s take a closer look:

FAKE! And dusty. And ugly. And cluttery.

They would’ve been much better off with a real plant!

Ivy, Claude, you both nailed it. Not surprisingly – you’re both sophisticated plant people.

Ivy, for being first with the correct answer, this week you’ve earned the following epithet: “The Bestest, Fastest, Speediest, Good Naturedest, Most Capable of Writing 50,000 Words in a Month, Of Fair Skin, Full of Giggles, Did You See That I Wrote 50,000 Words in a Month, Because That’s Impressive, Swiftest, Conquerer of the Houseplant Blog Universe and Beyond!”
