Q.hanging cactus or succulents
I had a hanging cactus or succulent for years. It finally died. It looked like a hanging cactus with spines, but did require more water than a cactus. Also, when it hung long enough, it produced little cactus plants on the ends of the hanging strands of cactus. It was given to me by a friend about 25 years ago and I felt terrible to lose it. Is there a chance I can replace it? I have no photographs.
There are so many different hanging cactus or succulents that it is very hard to make an identification from your description.
Here are some links and articles that may help.
