Although cacti are the most representative plants in arid places, when we reach humid areas such as Izabal, Alta Verapaz and Petén, we have observed cacti with a certain particularity: they are found on trees, climbing them, or on rocks. They also have a flower that surely attracts many pollinators at a specific time of day.
