I just got a little hanging plant in a 3" pot at Lowe's today. Its labeled as Acanthorhipsalis monacantha. I already have one of these, at least that is how it was labeled. The one I got today, however, has wider leaves. The other one has much narrower leaves. Can these be the same plant, or was it mislabeled?

Acanthorhipsalis has a wider leaf and orange flowers. It sounds like the first one you got would be a rhipsalis specie, you could do some research to identify the variety.

Thanks, wrangler! No wonder they don't look alike! I will look up specie as well.
