Epiphyllum guatemalense monstrose or more commonly known as "Orchid Cactus" "Curly Sue" 

How to care for your Orchid Cactus

It has long, flat leaves that twist and curl as they grow, giving orchid cactus its unusual appearance. The leaves trail, making it an excellent choice for hanging baskets and tall planters.

Grow orchid cactus in bright light. This exotic houseplant is perfect for hanging baskets right inside your window. If the plant gets enough light, it may produce beautiful, creamy-white orchid-like flowers (hence its common name). 

Water orchid cactus when the potting mix dries. Native to tropical rainforests where it grows on trees, this indoor plant doesn't want it soil to be moist all the time and will rot if it's overwatered. That often means watering once every 10 days or so, depending on conditions such as plant size, temperature, and how much light your orchid cactus gets. 

Like orchids and other tropical plants, orchid cactus prefers high humidity, but usually grows just fine in average household conditions.
