    The broad leaf is a Cereus plant... you can watch it bloom here...

    I love mine. It blooms once a year about 11pm on a hot summers night. It skips a whole year if I change it's location.

    I'm pretty sure it's called a night-blooming cereus.

      There are two different plants. The wide leaf is a night blooming cereus. Can't see the other one well enough

    They have made an app on Google Play store that will help u identify the plant by its leaf.

    IMO though, I think it looks like a sweet pea as well.

    Let us know if u try the app and how it goes.

    Great suggestions from Janet and Ar, give the links a try and see what you discover! The photo had me convinced it was Sweet Pea as well.

    You could also take it to your local nursery and ask.

    It is a shamrock plant. I am currently bsbysitting two of them for a friend who is out of town

    It’s either cerius or something that my mom had and called an orchid blooming cactus. Her plant had hot pink flowers. I think that cerius have white flowers.

    It is a Night Blooming Cereus. I had one and sometimes branches come out from the stem of a leaf. If you are very patient with it it will reward you with a bloom. It took mine years and years to bloom, at night!

    It is a Night Blooming Cereus. They are easy to grow and easy to make new ones simply by putting a cutting into a glass of water and wait for the roots to grow. Unfortunately, mine has never bloomed.

    This is the app. I use.

    Judging by what the plant looks like in the pot, it appears to be a birds nest fern or a blue fern with a leggy growth

  • Em Em on Feb 11, 2019

    Laura is the only correct one. it is a night blooming cerus. It gets a huge flower opens for one day and dies.

    I'm debating with myself between a Rhipsalis and the Night Blooming Cereus.
