Help Identifying Houseplant

My grandmother gave me a start of a plant several years ago, but never knew what it was. It is small, doesn't have leaves, doesn't bloom, and slowly spreads on its own. To make a new plant, just cut a few 1" pieces off and stick them in soil.
I took three pictures that somebody can hopefully identify:

Sorry I don't have an answer, but I'm interested to see what others have to say. At first I thought it looked like a Stepelia which produces a stinky (5 petal) star-shaped flower. All green plants produce a flower or cone, so your plant will probably flower if given ideal conditions. The flower really helps the identity. Nice pictures, BTW.

My first guess, seeing it had "no leaves" was a lithops. Wrong. They're one of the few succulents I like, because they don't look like succulents. They really do look like "living rocks" (or very early cellular division.) zemedelec

Sedum rupestre? or a close relative.

I bought one of these recently but lost the tag. I think it is a Crassula.

Yes, I do knw and already identified it as Crassula muscosa.
Rhipsalis are stem succulents in the Cactaceae not leaf succulent.

I had looked up Crassulae (sp) when I bought my plant and found a picture of this same plant. Unfortunately, I didn't bookmark the site. Before I replied to the the other poster I tried to find the picture again on other sites to no avail so just mentioned that I thought it was a Crassula, as I wasn't about to look for it all night. Just trying to help : ).
To the first poster:
You seem to have many sprigs of this plant growing well. When I bought my plant a few months ago, I divided it up. Part of it went into a succulent planter garden I had, an old yellow glazed pottery planter with a gollum jade (a cousin) and some more succulents planted. It's doing very well in a west window now during winter and gives a good effect with straight growth and trailing.
My grandma passed some plants to me and they didn't make it when I moved far away. I hope you can keep these plants long after your grandparents are gone and that you all grow and flourish.
