Um, you might want to check those results? My pic got 6 likes. Don't have to change it, I'm not going to win anyways.

There is absolutely no chance of me winning this contest... But, I wanted to show this cool succelent that I grow. It was given to me from a friend and it's been doing really well.

Thanks! Now I know what it's called. :D
I have to say, mine is much more robust than the pics on google.
I think the secret to growing succelents is light, the more light it gets, the larger it'll grow.
