I found this plant at Fred Meyer yesterday and had to have it. The tag says it's called a paddle plant? Anyone have or had one of these? Says it's a succulent, I thought it was really pretty.

Not sure what I did wrong but it seems that I have successfully manged to kill this plant faster than any other house plant I've ever owned. It was so pretty and I'm so bummed.
