I too thought it was a pencil cactus; but, it has stalks like tree bark?

Welcome! Kathy
The Pencil Cactus is actually a shrub/tree native in Africa. Smiling

Looks more like this to me:
Dancing Bones Cactus (Hatiora salicornioides)

Both can eventually form older, lignified trunks.

I think you're right Tiffany!, I had been wondering if the Pencil Cactus was right because of the thickened leaf parts in the plant.
The dancing Bones Cactus is an epiphyte growing on tree trunks and native to SE Brazil..

Yes, very different critters. One loves to bake in the sun in more dry conditions, the other a jungle epiphyte from moist shade, as you said.
