Cadetia chionantha

Cadetia chionantha is a member of the Dendrobiinae subtribe, which includes Dendrobium. Like Dendrobium cuthbertsonii, to which it is related, Cadetia chionantha is also found in the cool, misty mountains of Papua New Guinea. The leaves are about 5 cm long, and the flowers only about 8 mm across. It thrives in the same conditions as I keep my Dendrobium cuthbertsonii.

Well, your site sounds wonderful BUT... I upgraded my QuickTime 7 software but still couldn't run your files.

Hi, Marty.

Could you please let me know the exact error you're getting, in as much detail as possible? We may then be able to fix it for you. Without that info, I'm as much in the dark as you are!
