an interesting specimen - I do hope it comes good in its natural habitat.

This is quite similar in appearance to Disocactus flagelliformis, which is native to Mexico. Is this in a garden? If so it might have been planted. I imagine it would be very happy in the Cayman. Frustratingly, I can't find a decent online list of species native to the Cayman Islands, just rather gloomy predictions of extinctions due to deforestation for housing.
