Technical Interview Prep: And I Will Try To Fix You

Where is the blank space that needs to be filled in before the method ? It keeps displaying an Error

pep.py
import datetime


def my_func():
    return 'It ran!'


sizes = ['small', 'medium', 'large']


class Tree:


    def __init__(self, size, characteristics):
        self.size = size
        self.charac = characteristics
        self.roots = True
        self.leaves = 0


    def grow_leaves(self):
        self.leaves += 1


Tree( sizes[ 0 ], { 'name': 'Tulip Tree' } )

The message you are seeing is:

Bummer: Remove unecessary whitespace after '('

There are actually several instances of extra space in the last line:

Tree( sizes[ 0 ], { 'name': 'Tulip Tree' } )
     ^      ^ ^    ^                    ^ ^   extra spaces

There are also some extra blank lines inside the class, but the challenge doesn't seem to check those.
