I noticed this in the garden, but I am lost on what it is.

Maybe a Rhipsalis? Can't see the tips of any of the stems.

I think that's Whisk Fern (Psilotum nudum) , it's considered a primitive plant. I've had it sprouting in container plants for many years. It was identified for me by someone from Hawaii about 15 years ago. Florida distribution map: http://florida.plantatlas.usf....

Fascinating!! It looks like the "foliage" or whatever the term should be of Moa is flat, whereas the kind of Rhipsalis it resembles has round foliage.

Tiffany,
The "foliage" is not flat, but round. I checked it out close after seeing your post.
Now you have me thinking it may be a young Russelia equietiformis.

The "foliage of Psilotum nudum, Rusellia and one of my Rhipsalis look quite similar.

Very interesting. It was this pic of yours, Lin, that made me see the "flatness" of Moa. (A plant name I learned how to spell on my first exposure, here in this discussion! LOL!)
