Several years ago I got a small cutting of this plant, and now it fills a large pot. The lady I got it from said it was 'some kind of African Cactus'. It reminds me of a Christmas Cactus, but it has no sections, and some of the 'leaves' sometimes grow with a bit of a woody stem, then the flat 'leaf'.. Here's a bunch of pictures. She also said that it will have small pink flowers, but it hasn't bloomed in the 7 years or more that I've had it..... Any help would be greatly appreciated!
thank you! Naomi

It looks very much like the night blooming cereus, but they are a white bloom. I had a plant for many years 25+ , a cutting was given to me and I was told it would take 7 years before it bloomed and sure enough 7 years later it bloomed ( of course at night and I missed most of it )
Good luck this just may be your year

Does it look anything like this one? The leaves I mean.... This is a disocactus x hybridus. Had a really difficult time IDing it and finally sent pictures to CactiGuide.com and they helped me. It sure looks like an epi (Mark suggested) to me. There are so many different species it is difficult to say just looking at the leaves, but some of these really good professionals can do it. LOL. The flowers on this particular one are very large, so it is not your plant for sure. Hope this helps guide you in some direction to find out what you have. Good luck.
Good morning JB, haven't been on the Cubits in SO long! Thank you so much for the photo! I did find out that it is indeed an Orchid Cactus.... epiphyllum. I was rewarded for my patience and care a few months ago....
Thank you everyone for your help!
