Sorry I only have 2 pieces that I planted / put in water (Leca a few days ago) maybe 2 months ago … so I understand if it’s impossible to identify!! They are small pieces! The one in soil has had a recent growth spurt!! Which is lovely. The one in water has an amazing root system for such a small piece. Thanks

This is a hybrid Jungle Cactus of some sort. It will be good to see them bloom, maybe next Spring.
These hybrids are often called 'Epiphyllum Hybrids', but they are usually inter-generic crosses involving Disocactus, Epiphyllum, Hylocereus, and Selenicereus.
Furthermore, cactus taxonomy still lacks a stable consensus of opinion. Some workers include Hylocereus within Selenicereus.
Even with flowers it will be a challenge to decide on upon name, as there are many named cultivars as well as unnamed seedlings beening grown and propagated.

Well this is better and more information than I had and I’m so grateful for that!! I can’t wait to see if it blooms! So many hybrids !!! Do you recommend I care for this cactus like I would other Epiphytic cacti??

Yes, do treat it like other epiphytic cacti: bright light good rainage and more frequent watering than you would with desertic, or other terrestrial cacti. Also do post a photo when it does bloom, I imagine it will be spectacular.
