I know your plant.

Those are commonly referred to as "donkey tails." Yours are still in their juvenile stage.

If you prune them, they'll stay like this. If you don't, they'll grow long & thick (like a donkey tail) & form a flower at the end. I got some as clippings a few months ago, & they're propagating rather nicely. Eventually, it would be a good idea to transplant to a hanging basket.

Donkey tails can end up being rather expensive in nurseries, so it's awesome that you have this many - & each of those nubs will grow into a whole new donkey tail if you pluck them & transplant them. Enjoy!
