It had a dark blue flower in the middle that looked like a cactus pad in a way.

The one I'm thinking of, Tillandsia cyanea, has purple flower pads, but take a look at the link below and see if it looks familiar.

Yes! That is just what it looked like! Thanks so much :)

I wonder when it may get that flower again.

If you do a little bit of reading about bromeliads, you'll understand that the original plant will never flower again. If yours has begun to develop offsets (sometimes called 'pups '), they may eventually flower if you provide the right conditions.

I always think of this those floral spikes as pink! Those are the bracts and can last for many months after they first emerge. The little blue florets usually only last for a brief time.
