Default What is this NoID? And from there, why did it get wrinkles?

Here is something I got at TJ's. This has been a rough week & I have been glancing at my plants, but just noticed this was wrinkled. Any takes on what's wrong?

Potted in Shultz Orchid mix with bark & charcol & some pea gravel mixed in at bottom. Roots still look white & happy. Stays around 70-74 at night. Daytime of 75-85...depends on how cloudy it is. Gets bright light thru balcony doors from 12pm - 6pm.

Here's the flower:

I believe this is normal as the pseduobulbs get older and nothing to worry about. Many Onicidum alliance plants do this. Your plant certainly looks healthy.

I have the same one... It wrinkled worse than that...
Fear not though... these are fast growers and mine is already sending out 5 happy growths that have adapted and are wrinkle free.

I forgot to mention that the flowers are falling off. I know they've been in bloom, who knows how long, at the store. But is it safe to say they are just spent, and that its time fo them to fall?

That's great! Congrats on the growths! Mine hasn't done much of anything.

I have one from the food store that looks identical to the flowers and plant you have. It was labeled, Pacific Sunrise 'Hakalau'
