What plant is this?

I bought this plant years ago at a grocery store, and it never did have any names or care instructions. I managed to keep it alive for six years by sheer luck, but now it has died and I would love to get another if I knew what it was. Unfortunately, I only have dead pictures. Please help!

Can you post a picture of the leaves hanging off the back? Can't really identify by just a trunk.....

Sorry, I was trying to get the one leaf in the pic but it is all dried. Below are a few more.

Could you give more info like a description of how it grew/ if it flowered/ what the leaves were like when healthy?

The plant never flowered and never got much bigger than the 1.5 foot it started at. Not a fast grower. All the trunks/branches were original, i.e. no new growth other than leaves. It seemed to like a lot of sun and little water. Leaves looked almost like little bunches of oak leaves that grew from stems that seemed segmented like skinny bamboo stalks. Light green, very delicate.

If nobody figures it out here it may be a good idea to try posting on the "Name That Plant" forum as well. If your plant wasn't a typical houseplant then people here may not be familiar with it, but over there at "Name That Plant", people who are familiar with all sorts of plants contribute. Good luck!
