Orchid for Id: Please identify this orchid.
This is a hybrid of Dendrobium. Dont have much idea about hybrids.
I think It is Dendrobium Sania.
Well, if there can be a Dendrobium Amitabh Bachchan
It is a typo, nothing to do with Sania Mirza.!! Yes the Dendrobium Amitabh Bachchan is very popular in the Singapore Orchid Garden especially Indians were very eager to see this orchid.
Dendrobium Amitabh Bachhan: I am sending a photo of the Orchid – Dendrobium Amitabh Bachhan along with the photo of the sign board.
This orchid was named after Mr. Amitabh Bachhan to commemorate his visit to the famous National Orchid Garden, Singapore.
We should be proud that an orchid exists in the name of an Indian Celebrity.
Place : National Orchid Garden, Singapore
It is really good and an honour for all of us Indians. In records, it will go as Dendroium ‘Amitabh Bachhan’ or Dendrobium cv. Amitabh Bachhan
Singapore botanic gardens is famous for producing hybrids. They are one of the pioneers. And then they name it after celebrities. If you go there and you pay a good amount to them, they may name one hybrid after you.
No no, this is not corruption. This is a way to popularize orchids.
Its like, you go and pay and devote one orchid to your loved ones. I would be going there next month 🙁 unfortunately I am not so rich…..
I remember they had named a hybrid after Usha Narayanan, the wife of our late President K.R. Narayanan and it was wrongly mentioned that she was the wife of the Indian Prime Minister Vajpayee. Vajpayee being a bachelor would be shocked if he knew this.
