Drosera aberrans was formerly a subspecies of whittakeri. Mature rosettes can be up to two inches across. It has short, spade shaped leaves with a scalloped edge and the white, fragrant flowers can often be nearly as big as the plants! While Drosera whittakeri slowly forms clumps, Drosera aberrans can spread quickly via underground stolons.
THESE PLANTS GO DORMANT EARLY IN THE SEASON, USUALLY STARTING IN MARCH OR APRIL
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
