    I was going out the door to work yesterday when this stopped me dead in my tracks. I've had this plant for at least 8 years & had no idea that it actually had a flower! I'm not sure exactly what it is except that it is a succulent. Can anyone identify it for me? There's two different plants in the pot - the other is similar to a Xmas cactus so don't get confused by the foliage. Thanks!

    Looks like Epiphyllum oxypetalum!

    Definitely not a Cereus, they have ribbed cylindrical stems, not flat stems.

    Good observation Michael F! But there are actually 2 different plants in the pot & the other one has the flat stems. The Cereus has ribbed cylindrical stems. Thanks for all the info!!

    The Hindu Rope must be happy in my sun porch as it has bloomed many time for me!
