Lepismium (Rhipsalis) paranganiense
OMG...I think I have found my plant...unless it turns out to be a farce. It sure looks exactly like the plant my sister in law gave me the cutting off of! As soon as I saw this, I knew it was perfect in size, length, shape, color...everything! It looks like it could be rare, from Bolivia! Here is all I can find on it so far!
Lepismium (Rhipsalis) paranganiense An interesting Bolivian species that often retains its ’juvenile’ leaf structure, that of a more-or-less cylindrical stem, covered with short spines. Later the plants will form tri-angled leaves with undulating margins. The creamy-white flowers are fairly large.
