Tempe, AZ(Zone 9b)

I received this in a swap.

The trader said it is Lepismium houlletianum:

I disagree and think it may be epiphyllum anguligar:
But the lobes are not as deep as anguligar.

Any ideas?

I do believe you are correct. As far as the deep angularity of the leaves, young leaves do not seem to be as deep as older ones in my opinion.

Jacksonville, FL(Zone 8b)

I agree I have one plant that has 3/4 different shapes of angles

Noblesville, IN(Zone 5a)

I have one like it and it is a ric rac

Baltimore, MD(Zone 7a)

I think it is a Ric-Rac cactus as well. Check in Plant Files.....
It is in the Orchid cactus family.

These have the alternating "bumps" on the stalks....There is another kind where the ric-racs are opposite each other....

VERY easy to root from stem cuttings......OR--a whole section of the plant, should one break off....
The blooms are beautiful!
