This is Epiphyllum oxypetalum

They are epyphytic, and will not tolerate overly wet root zones. It is likely that the problem comes from overwatering.

It will not resolve itself, however. This is likely the start of an infection. Treating with a fungicide will be the best option. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/info/using-fungicides-in-garden.htm
