It's a cactus which grows as an epiphyte on tree branches, in the forests Central America.
It's called Epiphyllum. There are several species and hybrids.

Thank you so much for the information and yes the flowers are gone but just can't wait till the next lot I have it in a basket on the patio so can get the full impact of it. And wow Klahanie Mexico wow I never got there when I was living in the States and yes the castus flowers there that I've seen are so colourful and beautiful.
