I posted this in the Mystery plants
, and Zuzu's Petals suggested that it is Epiphyllum oxypetalum.
I checked on the Internet, and think that's a correct identification.

: I got this plant from my aunt last fall; it was pretty much dead then. To my shame, I did not take proper care of it until summer came. Then, as I was looking at its limp pale leaves, my stone heart finally showed some signs of humanity and I replanted it in well draining fresh soil and took the poor thing out on the balcony. And lo and behold! within few weeks it underwent a wonderful transformation. Its leaves became shiny and springy, and it began sprouting all this new glossy growth. Now I feel absolutely awful for not treating it properly all those months. This plant appears to have a very grateful and , hopefully, forgiving nature. So, would you help me please to make up for all that neglect? What is it? what does it need to be happy? (I took it inside couple of weeks ago, because it started getting a bit chilly at nights). It is not as glowing now as it was on the balcony and stopped sprouting new growth, but still appears to be healthy and generally pleased with life. http://i115.photobucket.com/albums/n309/treelove76/plants/P1010082.jpg
I don't remember what kind of soil I put it in; it might be part cactus
mix, but I am not sure. IT is in a plastic pot now. What is a proper mix for this plant
? Is plastic Ok? should I replant it in a more suitable soil?
DO I dare hope for a bloom at some point?
thank you everybody,
PS: I have no idea how old this plant
is. All the leaves on the pic are new growth.
