I was wondering if anyone had this plant and if you do, could you tell me how you care for it? Mine is really growing, but I don;t know if it should hang down or give it something to climb one. I don't think it has bloomed yet, but I could have missed them. It does have little bulbs/growths (?) on it. What are these? (pic below)

I have C. sandersonii and grow it as a hanging plant. You can grow it as a climbing plant by securing it to a support or trailing, growing it in a hanging basket. Since it is a succulent (most species) don't over-water it, like I DO! Mine starts growing well, in the greenhouse, then I go in with a hose and mass-water - it melts and has to start all over again.

Thanks Kay. I did read that...mine stays more on the dry side than wet, so I guess that's why it is doing so well. It's not what I expected when I ordered it. I thought it would be a lot bigger.
