Thanks for sharing, but this isn't any of the plants you have listed. For starters, it isn't a Cereus, it's an Epiphyllum. Most likely Epiphyllum phyllanthus. The "Dutchmans Pipe" is a nickname for Epiphyllum oxypetalum, which is a completely different species. Please see http://gotepis.com/drupal/node/5 for a full description and pictures of Epiphyllum oxypetalum.
