Great pictures, Matheus!  I love the Orthophytum, that is a species you don't often see for sale.  Your second-to-last photo is Hohenbergia castellanosii, showing wonderful foliage color.

Great shots!  The forest looks really interesting.  I could spend a whole day playing in a place like that!  The Vr. lancifolia and the Ortho look really cool.  I think everyone here is waiting to see more.
