Flowering succulant or cactus
I have a cutting from a plant and the "leaf" is about 10-12 in long and flat. Another part of the plant actually had a piece that was more triangle shaped. It is green and was in bloom with 3-4 inch hot pink colored blooms.

Hi Pookie - I don't even need a picture to tell you what this plant is. Based on your description, what you have is an Epiphyllum. Closely related to Schlumbergera, they occupy a similar niche. Native to warm jungles, they live high in tree tops where they receive bright light, warm showers of rain, and the composted leaves in the angles of branches of the trees. Their blooms are enormous, in all shades of bright pink, red, white and yellow.
Care of these is the same as for the Schlumbergera or Christmas Cactus, with bright light, cool nights, and after a summer outdoors, a twelve hour night period to induce blooming. Water more during the time leading up to bloom, and taper it off after to allow the plant to rest. You can resume watering with tempered water (lukewarm) during the summer outside. Hopefully, your cutting will bloom just as enthusiastically as the mother plant!
