     Sorry Not sure of the name but I think it has large dahlia type flowers.

    It’s an euphorbia, but which one I couldn't say as there are hundreds of them.  If it has three distinct sides then perhaps e.trigona?

    Looks to me like a severely etiolated Cereus peruvianus ; cut it down by half below the weakened 'stretchy' bit in the middle . It shouldn't be that shape .
    Place in g/house or sunny conservatory ; let the top callous over and then water as normal . It's getting a bit late in the year now for much more growth ; next year should see branches develop , but remember ; give MAXIMUM sunshine for strong growth .
