Issue with code challenge

I'm having trouble with this code challenge because for some reason it is not accepting "border-radius" as a value for transition-property. "border-radius" appears in blue when if I type in "background" or some other value it will appear in pink, indicating that the value is accepted. I cannot figure out why it is not accepting border-radius as a value here because I am not doing things any differently from what is in the videos.

.box:hover {

Looks like you put the transition on hover and your also missing webkit on some on them. Here's what you should have got:

.box { 
  border-radius: 15px; 
  background: #4682B4; 
  -webkit-transition-duration: 2s; 
  -webkit-transition-delay: 1s; 
  -webkit-transition-timing-function: linear;
  -webkit-transition-property: border-radius;
}

.box:hover { 
  background: #F08080; border-radius: 50%; 
}

Thanks, challenge completed! So it looks like you have to put all the transition property code into the element itself, not the in the pseudo-element. This is kind of confusing because that's different from what's in the instruction videos, and also it means that the code that's in the element is somehow reading the code that's in the pseudo-element and using that in its application.
