Could This Leaf Formation On the Bottom of My Orchid Be a Pseudobulb?

Question of the Week:

pseudobulb

“Ryan,

Today I bought this orchid and noticed a strange leaf formation at the bottom of the plant. Can you tell me what it is? It looks like a broad leaf but isn’t. What kinds of orchids have these?”
