    We bought this plant from a flea market a couple years ago and was wondering what the scientific/common name for this cactus was.

    If it helps, this cactus plant has produced small yellow flowers in the past.

    My first thought looking at that is that it's not a cactus at all, but a Euphorbia of some sort. I'm not sure which species, though.

    Hatiora salacornioides, commonly called "Drunkard's Dream", its an epiphytic cactus.

    I would suggest Hatiora salicornioides.
