Great, Ray! I'm so glad I was able to help you out. It does make caring for the plant and trouble shooting much easier when the true name is known!
: Eureka!!! Your link shows the plant! Thanks a lot. Ray
: : I think it does sound like a night blooming cereus or relative. The botanical name you need to search for is Epiphyllum. They do have two types of growth on the same plant.
: : Here's a link to a photo of a full plant.....it's hard to find pictures of the leaves or whole plant...seems like most of the photos are of flowers, only!
: : Good luck on your ID quest!!
: : : Newt: I have been to the national botanicals, and to a large nursery and to a knowledgible person, all saying it is a night blooming cereus, but it looks in no way like the pictures of the night blooming cereus. So the woman at the botanical garden said...well it is at least in the cereus group. Well, I see no evidence of that on the internet. The cereus look like stalwart cacti. This plant does not look like a cactus.
: : : I'll try and get pictures scanned.
