After looking at hundreds of Photos of rhipsalis my eyes which are normally quite crossed have begun to strighten out and tthe closest I can find to my plant is  hatiora salicornioides  which i don't feel confortable with.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

It looks like your research has yielded the likely correct name for your healthy looking cactus.

BTW, I like the trees behind your 'Drunkards Dream'. Are they Ceiba insignis?

Hatiora is a wonderful plant. Takes frost without missing a beat, and colors up red and orange when stressed.

Hi 60˚, Lo 31˚

ceiba pentandra I believe

When the Bosque Pimevera burned several years ago, the replanting was organized in a park a few blocks from my warehouse where I have my rooftop garden. After collecting numerous trees for the replanting event and actually going out there with hundreds of volunteers to replant the burned forest, they finished the day with several unused trees and on the way back to the  park, stopped at my place to offer me as many trees as I wanted. Amongst my choices were some 10 or 15 of these ceibas which I use to create shade, act as arbors for asparagus setaceus and have even given one over to the parasite; psittacanthus calyculatus (Mistletoe)

Thnaks
