It Looks Like an Epiphyllum cactus or Orchid cactus

Epiphyllum – Susan Lynn by epiforums

TheGardenLady received this question from Linda.

I have a cactus plant with long flat ears. It sprouts little ones all along the sides. I am writing to you to ask if you might know the name of a cactus that looks like that.  Here is a photo of it.

From the photo it looks like an Epiphyllum cactus or Orchid cactus.

There is a Epiphyllum Society of America if you want to try to find your cultivar or variety or join to learn more about the plant.

It is considered a fairly easy care cactus.  (see here and here)
