Mystery plant

Can anyone help Sarah Matty?

I have searched a lot houseplant books and Google images looking for the name of this houseplant. I cannot find it!

I originally received it in a funeral basket and I am struggling to keep it alive for sentimental reasons.

I was wondering if you could give me a name so I can find the proper care instructions for it.

All the leaves have fallen off the lower part of the stems, the plants seem to have only a single stem (there are two plants pictured).

I think it likes to be kept moist but that’s all I’ve got figured out after two years. The plants are getting leggy and I would like some info on how best to propagate these.

Please send your answers to garden@jg.net.
