    I've just been browsing through this section, and came across this thread.
    Please forgive a newbie mistake if I'm reviving something that's too old, and better left alone, :oops:
    but I do believe that I recognize Yonni's plant as an Epiphyllum,
    quite possibly E. oxypetalum, often called 'Queen of the Night' or 'Night-blooming Cereus',
    the green "stick-like" structure with the flattened "leaf" is characteristic.

    Mine bloomed several times this year :-D

    Zuzu never feel that can't post your opinions here - you're more than welcome to do so. :-D We were stuck as to what Yonni's plant was and I think you've managed to solve the problem for us. Well done!!
