Just as I like to have inherited objects, which come from other times and stories, I also like to surround myself with plants that come from the exchange with other people, that are daughters of the plant of someone I knew, from a segment collected on a walk, or born from a found seed.

In this case I share images of the first fruits of "aguaymanto" or "uchuva" that I harvested, they were born from the seeds of fruits that two students from the School of Design gave me in a project they were developing, both named Camila. As it is the first harvest and the plant is in a small pot, the fruits did not develop enough to consume them. I also keep them for the achievement and the beauty of their forms.
