It's a little messy, but every weekend I do something there...

- Is there anyway to put videos here?

Thanks!

yeah, it's great to spend some time at this place. the pond was built for the micro ones, that require more humidity. but I will put some fishes there, to gain some life. I am always buying some species. For exemple, this month I bought thirty orchids. I think I have two thousand species or more there.

the wood i used there is from the trees that I took off to plant fruit trees. but was a mistake, it's not a good wood and i need to change the orchids that are using it.

yes, I collect some in the wild. we have a lot of mountains near Curitiba, called Serra do Mar. it's a lovely place to spend a day collecting species near the rivers.

that one is a Dichaea. It's a red one (I don't the name of the red, but I have another called Dichaea pendula. You can see in my photos.

Nice set-up Luis!
Could I ask you what the tree in the middle background of photo #1 is? It appears to be an Auricaria of some sort, what we in Australia call a pine tree. I know South America and Australia were joined a few billion years ago and we share a lot of flora families. We have two native Auricarias and Norfolk Island out in the Pacific to our east has it's own native Auricaria and you guys have the 'monkey puzzle tree which is also in the same family.
The fern beside the fish pond in the last photo also looks a lot like one of our native Asplenium ferns locally called 'crow's nest ferns'.
Even the trailing fern hanging in the pond looks a lot like some of our Lycopodium ferns known as 'tassell ferns'.
Are they natives or plants that originated in Australia?
