Rhipsalis

I don't know this fellow's full name. He's not cereuscula, which I have a specimen of. This fellow is much darker, with a definite red tinge to his leaves. Any clues?

Not sure, but it sure is cute.

Hmmm, I'm on the case. I'll try to look it up and get back to you.

Whoa, reminds me of a praying mantis...does it each aphids, lol.

If I had to guess, I would say, Hatoria salicorniodes.

I'm so happy to have found a succulent blog based in my area. I'm relatively new to Canberra and I've fallen for all of the succulents around the place.
My latest love is lithops, but everything I've read tells me they're hard to grow, that I need seeds and to be very patient.
So far my collection is a few over-enthusiastic babies from a friend's patio and some pinched tips from some healthy, happy front yards.
Keep up the good work!

Oh wow--I have one very much like this. Mine is a light green, almost lime green, with pink mixed in. But other than that, they are exactly the same shape with the little hairs growing too. I thought mine was a rhipsalis, but can't help you with anything further. I've never seen one anywhere else.

Some kind of sarcocornia?
I'm a first timer here, but I've been looking for an ID for this: http://pinterest.com/pin/148689225168292453/ and it seems similar.
