I had a plant one time that looked like a small dead tree.
Not sure what the name was.
Can you help me identify it?

What kind of small dead tree?
We just need as much info as possible. Photos would be great.

No pictures, sorry.
It died about 3 years ago.
Imagine one of those trees on Lord of the rings, only that it is about 6 inches tall. Almost like taking a stick with branches and putting in a pot.
I've tried for years to find another one.

Maybe it was a dead stick with branches. Just a thought... Sighing!

Was it a succulent? Something like Pencil Cactus:
Pencil Tree (Euphorbia tirucalli)

Or Dead Stick Cactus:
Dead Stick Plant (Euphorbia platyclada)

Good job Daisy! Thumbs up
The surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that it has never tried to contact us.
