It looks to me to be a moss rose which come in many colors, singles and double blooms. 1 of the branches with the thickened leaves looks a bit odd to me but the rest looks like moss rose.

I have always known it to be an outside plant. I used to put bunches of them in big baskets and they get quite dramatic when in bloom and do repeat all season.

I am not sure if they survive inside though. Put in a window for sure.

it does look like that. the flowers look a little smaller on the one I posted but could be because the plant is young and not fully matured or cause its in that small watering can pot

I didn't mean to imply it was that exact one. I was just showing 1 similar. There are a ton of these out there that are similar but not the exact same ones. You would need a DNA test on them to tell.
