Please help me identify this succulent, I water it just once a week. It is bushy, no leaves just thick longish spikes with red ends.


Hi Aman, this looks to be one of the Rhipsalis or Sarcocornia, which I'm not very familiar with. There are many different ones, and without closely examining it, I couldn't tell you for sure. These are tough, reliable and interesting plants, and yours looks very happy where it's growing.

You can find more about Rhipsalis here.

Hope that helps narrow it down,
Jacki

that's euphorbia
by: Holly Brown

I highly believe that is a Euphorbia tirucalli aka Firesticks. They're green when small then the ends start to turn red hence the name Firestick. Look up the name I gave you to do research but I am almost positive that's what that is!
