OMG It's Not an Orchid: Epiphyllum 'Tequila Sunrise'

I got a piece of this plant via trade earlier this week, and the original owner sent me a photo of the flower I might see, one day, if the plant really likes me and I treat it well:

Dunno how likely this is to happen indoors, of course. But how could I not try?

It looks like it could be a Queen of the night. I love that kind of plants. I am about to get one my self.

My grandmother grew a range of Epiphyllums for decades and they flowered very reliably for her. She kept them in a relatively cool room in the winter and in a sunny spot on the terrace in the summer.

Love these cacti. Amazing flowers.

i'd like to get ahold of one of these. I only have the queen of the night and I don't get to enjoy the blooms fully before they wilt at sunrise
