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

RE: Something's finally blooming!

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

Maybe Rhipsalis baccifera ssp. baccifera.

RE: Something's finally blooming!!!!

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



Again~RE: Something's finally blooming!

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!

RE: Something's finally blooming!

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
