Epiphyllum 'Cancun'?

I purchased this as a 2 year old plant at a local nursery 4/6/02.  It was labeled 'Star of Persia', but when it had its first bloom 4/25/03 the label was obviously wrong.  Based on a photo and the description in The Registry, it may be Cancun.  The flower was 9.5" wide and lasted 4 days.

In 2004 this plant had two 9" blooms.  In addition, another plant purchased at the same nursery labeled 'Moon Goddess' turned out to be the same flower.  It had 3 blooms.  I combined both into a hanging basket.

In 2005 there were 3 blooms.
