From a lay person it appears to be of the cactus family. I have had this plant since a baby about 5-7 years ago and it never done anything except grow. My family says it is ugly but somehow I continue to love it.

Got ready to bring it in off the covered porch (filtered light) and it is growing babies from the side. Is this flowers I ask. Whew! Hope so. It will be loaded.

What is this plant Walter? If it is flowers coming out will it reappear next fall/winter?

Can’t wait for your answer.

    Yours isn’t a christmas cactus, but it’s in the same family. Probably has some wild yellow flowers when it blooms.
