It's a bit difficult to tell from the photo - do the leaves have more than one lobe? Is the red stuff at the base part of the plant? If the answer is no to those questions, then I'd say it looks like Queen of the Night (Epiphyllum oxypetalum), a succulent with long, waxy leaves that has really impressive blooms for only one night of the year.

The reddish brown part on the bottom is part of the plant, I have two new pics

I removed a few leaves today, here is one of them, cut right at the bottom

And the underside of this leaf, the reason I cut it as I believe something has laid eggs on it
