Its a small guy I got from a friend a year ago. She said it is her husbands favorite plant and took years to find. She never said the name what is it?

I'd say Deuterocohnia brevifolia ssp. brevifolia.

Hi all. I got this from a friend and when I did it was about a half an inch from the rim and that was a year ago. Now its filled onto the rim. It blooms but I notice the buds and then the next day some are gone. Do the blooms only stay open for a day or less? He gets regular water.
