I have just bought a lovely Orchid I think it is Cambria variety. When I took it out of its wrapper I noticed the lower round base is very wrinkled and would like to know what I should do to solve this. I have others the same variety which are nice and smooth at the base is this caused by under watering over watering not feeding over feeding. Is it go to die?

What you are looking at, there, is what will form to be what resembles a bulb. Although not a true bulb, it will look similar to one once it fills out. This is completely normal.
These like dry periods for a day or two so water them weekly, with quarter strength orchid fertilizer.
