After a lot of searching online, I'm still unable to identify this plant. From picture searches, I always get pencil cactus, but the plant isn't segmented like a pencil cactus. I'm fairly certain it's a succulent and it's a common plant in markets here in China. It's grown from a two inch plant to over a foot in about a year. Please help me to identify it if you can. Thanks!

Welcome to the forum @ Kerrych :)

At first glance I think your plant is a Rhipsalis, although I`m not sure which one :unsure: It looks as if it will have some flowers shortly.

Hi Kerrych:

This is the Cattail Euphorbia (Euphorbia alluaudii), native to Madagascar. It was formerly called Euphorbia leucodendron, and you will still often find it listed as such.
