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?

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.
