Does it have long, sometimes segmented, strappy "leaves".  I have one
too.  I am also trying to pinpoint it's name...closest I have come is
some variety of an Orchid Cactus.  However, I have basically ruled out
"Queen of the Night".  Hope this helps.


The kiss of the sun for pardon,
The song of the birds for mirth.
One is nearer God's heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth.
