    Sorry the photos are not the best quality! But I had them in the computer, so I figured I throw them up here. The second photo is the flower about to bloom.
    Yes, I believe they are the same.

    BD I think your white night blooming cacti are Epiphyllum anguliger hybrids. The local ethnic Chinese here believe that it is very lucky for the owners when it blooms. It is not uncommon for whole families to stay up the night just to enjoy the blooming.
