These are several cuttings that I have rooted from a plant my mother nurtured back to health. She doesn't know what it is and I was hoping someone may have an idea what type of plant this is. It's a lot of fun and seems hardy enough with regard to rooting. You can see the roots in the pix.
Thanks, Sis & MiniSchunuz! I did a search on the internet and found its scietific name, Euphorbia tirucalli (what a mouthfull!) It's nice to know what this is. I've been wondering for over a year ~ THANKS!!
Sorry guys, but this is not Euphorbia tirucalli. Morph, break or poke a stem, and if it does not exude milky white sap it is not Euphorbia. Besides E.tirucalli does not root that easily.
What you have here looks like a Rhipsalis which is an epiphytic cactus. Hmm, I have seen Rhipsalis being called 'Pencil plant'. Euphorbia tirucalli is often called 'Pencil cactus' although it is not a cactus at all but a succulent. No no, don't get me going on that 'common name issue' right now...
