Agreed on the cacti thing...UNLESS you try some of the *Rhipsalis *and
related genera.  They are well adapted to lower light levels and high
humidity, being epiphytes.  Most are rather floppy, but cuttings of species
like *R. crispata *are rather sturdy and will support themselves until they
grow to a height of a foot or so.  And *Hatiora* remains upright even when
heavily branched.
