Fingerlike segmented Succulent - What is it!?


I need help identifying my succulent. He has long, hanging segmented "fingers".
They are cylindrical and grow in little branches.
He has white hairs but they are not sharp or spiny, they are soft.

Any ideas?!

Hi Erika, good try on the pics. This is in the genus Rhipsalis, but there are so many I couldn't begin to tell you the species. Maybe that will give you a starting point though.

You can see more about them here; Rhipsalis.

They perform best (ie: flower) when root bound so don't be too quick to repot it. They don't like too much water, and it's best to let them completely dry out before watering them again, and in fall they should be allowed to go dormant (no water at all).

Hope that helps.
