Looks like you have a Rhipsalis there (and not an epiphyllum). Could be R. elliptica, R. occidentalis, or others. Will need you to post closeup pics of the buds, flowers and fruit to get a good ID. My R. elliptica is blooming right now, so that would be a possible ID for you as the timing is right for it.

krowten, you've nailed it. R. elliptica it's! Many thanks. Linda, the plant is amazing. This is its first blooming wave for me.

Linda, the blooms must be very small as the buds signal. Last winter I had another Rhapsalis that blooms the buds looked very much like this one. I surely will post pics. as this one opens.
