Janette ~
I have here the Lidl catalogue for this week, with photo of your plant.
Underneath is says choose from Spathiphyllum, Tillandsia, Guzmania and more.

Any of those three your one ?
I'll try googling them for you.
Leaves and flowers look like Guzmania.
What do you think ?

Dont pitch it if the flower goes, it'll have babies around the sides. :-)

The flower on mine lasted for ages and yes, finally, it went...but it does have babies around the sides! I'm hoping it will eventually flower again.
