Ok. So. I've been searching for the name of one of my favorite indoor plants. I've had it for three years, and it seems healthy. I was told on another website that my plant was most-likely this: Rhipsalis teres f. heteroclada. Then I see this photo and am thinking it resembles This: Coral Cactus (Rhipsalis cereuscula). Here are my photos of the succulent I am trying to positively identify.

Any help is Greatly appreciated.

I will gladly help you the best i can.In my opinion at first look it does seem to be a Rhipsalis Cereuscula. But let me try to get the person who IDed mine to take a look.can you post a picture of the whole plant? I can't see the middle of the pot.Is this how you bought it or did you root it or get pieces of one? It's a nice plant.Yours is definitely a lot further along than mine. Thumbs up

Have a nice day!!!

I think it is a Rhipsalis cereuscula. Yours looks very similar to the two my grandmother gave me from her parent plant, and she called it 'coral cactus.' Took me forever to figure out what the scientific name was!
