Notes:

My sister has had this plant for many years. I have yet to put a name to it. It doesn’t appear to have leaves. Woody stem, yellow flowers in the summer/fall. She keeps it indoors in the winter, outdoors in indirect light on Long Island, NY. She has been successful in propagating only once (the greener looking specimen) and I’m not sure how she did it. I’m thinking in the right climate it would be a shrub.

    Thank you so much! This is definitely the correct identification. Guess we were wrong about it being a shrub! An epiphytic South American forest cactus? I didn’t even know that existed! Can’t wait to tell my sister! Thanks again!

    Looks like Hatiora salicornioides, synonym:Rhipsalis salicornioides. It has several common names, one of them is”Drunkard’s Dream’. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/55382/
