Beautiful. I've got a very small collection of some of those myself. Would you be willing to share what substrate mixture and lighting your using?

The Haworthia are in the same mix sans the potting mix and calcium carbonate.
T5HOs are used for lighting.
Many neps are ridiculously expensive, IMHO.
The buddy of mine does have some haws that are worth more than a few shekels, but none of those over the top "rolls Royce" models to which you're referring.
Corky, besides being small plants by nature, Haworthia don't want a lot of intense light like so many cacti and succs do.... Another point in their favor. Most, in fact, are summer dormant.

For they are the ones who let in the light."
You have a lot of nice cacti there. I've never seen a crest of Pelecyphora. How big is the plant?
You have a lot of Mexican slow growers there. Ariocarpus, Turbinicarpus, Pelecyphora. I saw a 75 year old Ariocarpus at the Connecticut Cactus and Succulent Society show one year. The Philadelphia Cactus Club shows at the Phila Flower Show. Went last year. Some really amazing ancient plants very well grown. I almost bought a 75 year old Pelecyphora aselliformis up at the CT show, but the seller asked me a very serious question first. He asked if I was will to take the stewardship of such an old plant and if I was sure I could grow it. I thanked him and declined the purchase. I know I'm still a novice.
Uebelmannia grows pretty much all year in Brazil Minas Gerais. Likes acid soil and shaded light like growing under shade of grasses. Mine actually flowered one year. But I have been neglecting my cacti recently. Lost my cold greenhouse storage for them and my CP.
Acidify your water for the Uebelmannia. I Have Nitric Acid at work and use it to acidify. I add a few drops to 5 gallons of tap water to bring it down to 5.5 or so.
