Cactus name with orange red tear drop flowers

Cactus name. I have a large cactus houseplant, it sits on a high planter and the branches droop to the floor. It gets large orange reddish large teardrop flowers. It is a very old plant. I am trying to find the offical name of the plant. Thank you Marian Y. South of Pittsburgh, PA

Hi, Well without a photo I can't be sure, but it sounds like you might have a Christmas cactus. If so, these are not truly cactus, but ephiphytes that need a bit more water than cactus. They have dangling red, white, orange, pink, etc flowers. Check out our Plant Encyclopedia on this website to see if I'm correct.
