Jenlee, here is Rhipsalis salicornioides, (Hatiora) Dancing Bones for comparison. The plant I had with that name was smooth stemmed with small 'swellings" along the stems. It was sold as Drunkard's dream. Your plant appears different to me.

Xenomorph, it sure looks very much like Rhipsalis trigona. It hasn't bloom yet.
