I joined the forum about two months ago. Since then, I've been actively involved, sometimes helping IDing succulents, but most of the time asking for the help of the experts here. So I realized it would be nice to show my greenhouse and collection.
That is my new and modest greenhouse. It is 2,80 x 4,00 m and was made with very cheap material. The arches are formed by PVC tubes that wear rebars stucked on the ground. As we don't have severe winters here, this greenhouse was made just to protect the plants from constant summer rains.
The tables were not so cheap, but I hope they will last 20 years...
The left tables take sun all day long, while the right tables are shaded during the morning.
On the left tables, there are the plants I don't consider as of my collection. They are Sedums, Echeverias, et all., which I propagate to sell locally. I use them to make succulent arrangements (which can be seen here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/suculentarium/

A view of these plants:
The right side harbours my collection, which is very modest (although my ambitions are not). Some views of my collection and some plants featured:
Even with all the advantages of square plastic pots, I prefer clay pots or cement pots I do myself.
I like to have my plants in displays trying to mimic nature, such as the few ones here:
My next step will be growing from seed. I have a set of cacti and mesembs seeds, and soon I'll be posting a new thread to ask for help with this. I'm thinking about purchasing some Euphorbia, Stapeliads and Cauduciformis...it is never ending!
I hope you guys have enjoyed my stuff,
