Notes:

I have never seen this plant before and it was the only one they had at the store and I fell in love with it. I love how the leaves hang and somewhat curl up. I was told it’s a spring cactus. Thank you!

    Without its flowers to help narrow down, I’m guessing this is a night bloom epiphytic cactus cultivar in the Epiphyllum genus. This might be Epiphyllum hookeri subsp. guatemalense, one of its synonym is Epiphyllum phyllanthus var. guatemalense ‘Montrosa’. Check out images of the included the link below.
