Something's finally blooming!

Got this cutting from a friend of mine in a trade...

Do you know what it is?

Stems are about as thick as a pencil.

Good for you, Joyce! :) Nice shot!

My guess is Rhipsalis baccifera, as seen below.
This is another one difficult to ID sometimes, as there are many subspecies.


Here is a link that might be useful: Rhipsalis baccifera

Kinda looks like one of those little stick things --perhaps some sort of Rhipsalis.

Maybe Rhipsalis baccifera ssp. baccifera.

No one can beat Rosemarie when it comes to an ID. We seem to agree. Dangerous!!!

Well, sure they do! It happens all the time! Great minds think alike!

Thanks Al and Rosemarie!

I labeled it in my Photobucket album!
Funny thing was, I was watering my Orchids today, taking down the hanging pots to do it...and that is how I noticed these sweet little buds! Two huge hanging potted orchids were hiding this little beauty!

Bloomin' marvellous! Joyce, they're such a sweet delicate little flower aren't they. I picked it as a rhipsalis, but my experience is limited to only ever having seen/owned one of "those little little stick things" I'd be hopeless at id-ing it beyond that.

Happy growing. CP
