This is the last of the hanging plants I found at my aunt's garden. At first glance I thought it was an orchid with no blooms since she does have lots of different exotic orchids..but then again, she also has some wonderful hanging, trailing succulents. Would anyone know what this is?

It looks like Hatiora salicornioides, commonly called "Dancing Bones":

Thanks Lin! So it seems it goes with two names either as Rhipsalis salicornioides or as Hatiora salicornioides. Maybe I will just add it in the Hatiora salicornioides, seems just right. I should remember to ask my aunt if it bears the yellow flowers.
