I have been in love with succulents (cactus, succulents and caudiciforms) since I was given one when I was 16 years old. Since then I have been investigating them and, little by little, expanding the collection. I hope to infect you with the excitement and curiosity I feel about these plants in this blog, where I will tell you about their characteristics, care, properties, uses and curiosities. I will also show you photos of my specimens and those that I find on my trips and walks through nature. I am fascinated by the diversity and beauty of succulents, which can adapt to different climates and conditions. Some of my favorites are aloe vera, echeveria, kalanchoe, Christmas cactus, and Easter cactus. I like to learn about their origins, scientific names, families and genders. I am also interested in knowing its benefits for health, beauty and the environment, as well as its applications in gastronomy, crafts and decoration.
