Plant ID please

LoveMyGreenBabies(9)June 16, 2013

I've inherited a few plants from my grandma and I have no idea what they are. Any help would be appreciated :)

This plant I'm guessing is some kind of cactus or succulent. It has been in a small bowl-type pot for years, and the plant itself is about 2 feet in diameter.

LoveMyGreenBabies,
I will be corrected if I'm wrong, but I believe that is some kind of Rhipsalis. Sorry, I don't know which one.

Could it be a Rhipsalis elliptica?

LoveMyGreenBabies,
I believe it is indeed Rhipsalis elliptica. I saw one of these in Lowes just yesterday in a hanging basket for $15 (granted, it was in a nice size pot, but $15 is a lot for me haha!).

Hopefully now that you have a name, you will be able to research it's proper care and make it thrive like it appears your Grandmother did (I'm not sure if those are buds/blooms on your plant, but I believe it is a "good sign")!

I believe those are seed pods on the leaves.
