Orchid for ID from Delhi-GS22092021-1:
Please help with the ID of this Orchid, a part of bouquet presented to me to may 75th Birthday last year, February 2020 in Delhi.

Dendrobium sonia
It’s hybrid

Congratulations on the 75th birthday sir.
This is a hybrid of Dendrobium, most likely Dendrobium Sonia. But not sure about the hybrid name.

Congrats, …, on completing 75 years.


Orchid in my Birthday platter: Dendrobium sonia, let us fix its correct name-GS15022023-1: 3 high res. images.
Yesterday by son took us to a Mexican restaurant in Fremont California for my Birthday (it was still 13th February in California, but already 14th in India, my birthday). We were served an orchid as decoration on two platters. … identified this orchid as Dendrobium Sonia. Please help me in fixing correct scientific name: Dendrobium ‘Sonia’ or Dendrobium sonia ‘Bom Jo Red’ or Dendrobium ‘Sonia Earsakul’ or any other appropriate name. There is no accepted name as Dendrobium Sonia in important databases.
   It is supposed to be a cross between Dendrobium ‘Caesar’ and D. ‘Tomie Drake’

Many many happy returns of the day sir.
Will have a look into this.
Hybrids are not at all easy. Sometimes they all look same…

There is indeed a hybrid registered as Dendrobium Sonia!! n 1984.

And your flower does match with this name at the following site.
While the first site is authentic, I am not sure about the second site.

So finally I think I found the solution. It is Dendrobium Sonia (Dendrobium in italics-genus; Sonia with normal type but not within single quotes (cultivar) nor in italics with small s (specific epithet). Sonia is a Grex name, a term used exclusively for Orchid hybrids.

Waiting for … to say OK

Yes sir.
Dendrobium Sonia

Just to wish … a very happy (though a little belated) birthday. Also this was an occasion for us to learn something new.

Many many happy returns of the day, Singh ji.
Wish you have a wonderful time and a year ahead.💐💐💐
