I think this may have originally come from @Bubbbles so if you see this, Sandi, please let me know, if you can. Thanks.

I did get a tentative ID of Hylocereus and I think that's it.

Tee, this looks very much like Hylocereus/Pitahaya! We saw them growing last Summer in Ecuador and if you like to compare your plant to my pictures posted in here?

We saw them growing over large boulders.

Thank you very much, Ursula. That looks like a match to me. Beautiful plant. I love the growth habit and the way it drapes over the rocks and boulders. I won't expect much fruit here since it will be in a pot with limited space, but you never know.

Thanks again!
