This plant is in a tiny pot atop my fountain. The berries have begun to pop and the tiny seeds look like bird droppings.

It reminds me of my rhipsalis elliptica, but your leaves appear longer.

Thanks, Deebie! Looks like you've put me on the right track. It does look like a Rhipsalis. The mature leaves are mostly 5 1/2" long. They're strappy and the feel a little like leather.

How about Pseudorhipsalis ramulosa ( Red mistletoe cactus )?. closely related, so it could really similar with Rhipsalis elliptica, or Rhipsalis Oblonga.

@tofitropic I think the P. ramulosa is what I have. The first search didn't show me any that were close. Then I typed in "red mistletoe" and there it was! Thank you for your ID.
Solved!
