What is This Plant? (Night Blooming Cereus)

I am trying to find out what type of plant this is. I started it from a leaf that fell off my sister's plant. Her long stems are about 8' tall that was started 5 years ago.
Here is a picture, not sure if I got the full effect of the leaves that are thick and other leaves grow off of them. Also the stems get very long then a group of leaves start again.

Without any possible mistake this is a Broad-Leafed Epiphyllum popular name is Queen of the Night, because the flowers open at night, the most beautiful flowers for their colour : orange or pink or pure yellow or white and the most incredible fragrance.

It is a night blooming cerus plant, it is in the succulent family and only blooms once a year, but it is beautiful.

I have one too, had it for more than a decade & it has never bloomed. I knew it was a succulent, but never knew the proper name. How could I get it to bloom? It is potted with my ponytail palm that is over 4' tall.

It is a night blooming cereus. Interesting enough, in Puerto Rico it is referred to as lady of the night, because it flowers open at night and by morning it's closed. I have one that blooms in white. They are beautiful.
