No, the stems are too thin and too short. I'm thinking maybe an epiphytic cactus like Rhipsalis or similar. But it's puzzling that there seem to be two different kinds of growth in the pot, some stems totally upright and the vast majority sprawling sideways.

It reminds me of Rhipsalis; one for example:

Some Rhipsalis just seem to do that, grow very compactly for a while, then suddenly throw a few really long stems. ...but Rhips make great companions for each other, so it's also possible there are multiple species together.

Also compare to these:
Conambaia (Rhipsalis teres)
Rhipsalis (Rhipsalis pilocarpa)
