This is a hanging vine-like plant that I believe to be a succulent. The vines are about 4 feet long with small (1 inch) cigar shaped "leaves".

Ever since I moved it to another room with less light it hasn't been doing well, and I would like to know what type of plant it is so I can research how to best care for it.

Drought Smart Plants reply:

Hi Joseph, your plant seems to be really similar to this String Beans on thin Draping Stem - could it be the same plant?

In any event, if it was happy in the first place you had it, maybe you can try and copy the conditions. Light levels are usually the most important factor, but you can have problems with dry air, cold air from an air conditioner, or the type of water you use to water it.

Hopefully, you can tell if it is the same plant, as there is a lot of information there from another visitor to the site.

Happy Gardening!

I think that's the plant! That really helps. My hunch is that it's not getting enough sun. And I should probably give it a hair cut.

String of Bananas
by: Haley

That looks very much like a String of Bananas plant that I had a while back. I loved it. It almost exactly like a String of Pearls with the thin window on each leaf. It is toxic to animals so, if you have any, I would keep it out of their reach.

The string of bananas are small which I do have, your looks like the hanging "Fish hooks" which I also have.
