Drosera whittakeri "dark red x typical" Potted
These Drosera whittakeri "dark red x typical" are from multiple clones, grown from seed and produced at California Carnivores. Damon crossed his biggest and darkest red clone with a nice typical plant to make the seeds. Mature plants can be almost three inches across. The leaves are extremely dewy and have a scalloped edge. While in growth they will produce large, white, sweetly perfumed flowers one after another.
Please note; this plant is dormant from May - September and if ordered during this time will arrive with little to no visible growth.
Sun: As much sun as possible, if sun is inadequate during their winter growing season supplement with T5 fluorescent lighting. When growing under lights set photo period to 7 or 8 hours during the winter.
Water: Sitting in water in September, as summer approaches wait for the plant to quickly go brown. Then reduce watering so that it slowly goes dry over the course of a month. Distilled or purified water only. Keep in a cool, dry place during summer dormancy and sprinkle them with water once every couple of weeks
Temperature: Extreme heat (over 90 degrees) during their growing season may send them into dormancy, many species experience light frost in the wild for short periods of time but must be protected from freezing
Dormancy: Dormancy is variable but often starts in May and ends in September
