Does anyone happen to know what the name of this house plant is?

I’d be very appreciative to know what this spindly, long leafed I can’t say if I can call them leafs:) plant is that bears these large and gorgeous pink flowers, if you know please enlighten me, thanks! ‘~]))

To reiterate this is in the Cactaceae family, it’s an Epiphyllum cactus, ( I was thinking a succulent, wrong!)

Thank you Andy for identifying this for me!

    • I agree it was hard, but you did find it thanks Andy, for that, the tweet and for your comment. xox

      Thanks Andy for the ID find !
      Epiphyllum (pronounced /ˌɛpɨˈfɪləm/;[2] “upon the leaf” in Greek) is a genus of 19 species of epiphytic plants in the cactus family (Cactaceae), native to Central America. Common names for these species include orchid cacti and leaf cacti, though the latter also refers to the genus Pereskia.
      The stems are broad and flat, 1-5 cm broad, 3-5 mm thick, usually with lobed edges. The flowers are large, 8-16 cm diameter, white to red, with numerous petals.
      The fruit is edible, very similar to the pitaya fruit from the closely related genus Hylocereus, though not so large, being only 3-4 cm long.
      Fruit of Epiphyllum anguliger
      Epiphyllums are popular house plants, with numerous hybrids and cultivars. The broad-leaved epiphyllum (Epiphyllum oxypetalum) is particularly well-known. It bears large, strongly fragrant flowers, that bloom for a single night only.
      Epiphyllum species are added to some versions of the hallucinogenic drink Ayahuasca.
      source wiki once Andy ID’d it.
