It may be some type of Epiphyllum.

Hi Serin, Welcome!

My eyesight isn't the best; is that plant a very pale green color as shown in the photo or was that perhaps due to the lighting when the photo was taken? I agree with purpleinopp, those stems do resemble Epiphyllum (commonly called Orchid Cactus). Once you see blooms, a more exact ID will be possible. Epiphyllum come in all colors; we have many listed in our database with photos for comparison:

@purpleinopp Thank you very much!

@plantladylin Yes, it's probably because of the lightning, and thank you very much. I will wait for them until they blooms!

How large is this plant? It appears far too tiny to be any sort of epiphyllum, but without knowing its size or having anything to provide some sense of scale, it's hard to tell.

I was thinking possibly some type of rhipsalis. As others have said, though, it will likely be easier to ID once it grows out some & blooms.

It does look to small in the photo, but I don't know of anything else that has those leaves.
