This is an Orchid. Soak the roots for a few minutes if wilted, and let them drain well. Then study regular care instructions online. The flowers should last a week or more, and some people have locations where the plant thrives and reblooms again next season. Here is an article from California Master Gardeners, and you'll find many more online. http://ucanr.edu/sites/mgslo/newsletters/Orchids28030.htm
