Zero greenthumb and hated plants and flowers growing up. Now I find myself exploring all the different types of plants, leaves and petals that exist!

Here's a side pic of the flower I first posted. Unsure if I'm using/posting/responding correctly so bear with me. ☺ #advice #helpidentify

Definitely looks like a cactus flower of which there are many varieties including ones that only bloom at night! We would need to see the leaves of the cactus to narrow it down.

Yes! @usgardentags Just learned from someone here it's an epiphyllum hylocerea (butchered the name.) And some epiphyllum species are added to some versions of the hallucinogenic drink ayahuasca! Thanks for helping with this!

The flower looks a little like an Orchid Cactus but I can't see the leaves so I'm not sure

@justin @allblissedout sorry folks don't know this plant. At a guess I'd say a bulbous perennial but not certain.

@justin @allblissedout ok, been doing some searching. It looks very very much like a cactus flower, is that possible?

It very well could be @robbiec as @justin thought it was as well. The leaves don't look 'cactusy' to me, but I know nothing of plants. I'll start looking into cactus flowers. 😀
