Looking to try and identify this plant, it's not had a lot of growth since I got it in February and want to check that I have it's conditions correct! Can anyone help give me a name of this plant so I can do some homework ? 🤓

That is an adorable plant. I'm not sure what it is but my first thought is some kind of Rhipsalis.

Thanks for the welcome and taking the time to help me out! I'll look at that one, it's a good start 😋

Edit: I've just googled the proper name and I've already got a mistletoe cactus. You probably can't see in the photo but all the sections of the plant have tiny hairs and are fluffy at the ends

Thanks Tiffany, there are a lot of similarities. The colour and length of the sections is a wee different but could definitely be from the wrong growing conditions on its succulent tag that I've given it. I'll try a few weeks with pilocarpa growing conditions and hope for the best 🙏🏻
