Inherited this plant (and many cacti & succulents) after my father passed. I think it may be a tropical. Seems to have a woody type of stem.

Epiphyllum but wait for flowers to determine which one.

Hi Jen1973, Welcome!

I agree, your plant is an Epiphyllum A very popular one grown by many is Queen of the Night (Epiphyllum oxypetalum) but they come in many shades/colors, some are nocturnal blooming, some have very fragrant blooms.

Our database has many listings with photos:
