I found this thread and since it is relevant to my question I post it here if you dont mind:
UPDATE: I have a question. The weather here is beginning to look like the spring one...finally (God that was a long winter!). So I placed the pots with tubers outside to get some sun. To my sincere joy I doscovered that Drosera whittakeri ssp. aberrans is waking up (and also D. menziesii ssp. menziesii-but is too small to take picture with my sh.tty camera). Others are still sleeping. So since some started active growth I began to sprinkle some water on the substrate. My question is about the temperature: during the day it is 10-17C so it is ok but at night we still experience 1-4C sometimes. Are the growing plants in danger if I leave them outside 24/7? Thanks:-) Some pics:
(I hope for some flowers soon:-)
Growing outside 24/7 under the conditions you describe should be fine. In my sunroom my plants experience temps down to freezing and do just fine. The big thing to remember is to protect them from frosts, especially a hard frost. Other than that you should be good.

Thank you Pyro!
We do not expect any sub-zero temperatures so the plants should be fine. Cant wait for the other tubers to come out! :-)
I have a question about D. whittakeri ssp. aberrans......is it a slow grower?> Because we have had perfect weather lately and after two weeks from the shot above it looks like this:
I am afraid she will not have enough time to grow before it gets too hot (in 2 months)...
so now is the right time to lenghten the photoperiod of tubers and time to make them dry? Mine is just a seedling so i dont really know what to do.
so is it about time to go dormant? :/ its pretty small.
Don't start drying them out until they start to die back on their own. D. peltata, auriculata, and whittakeri don't seem to mind being kept moist all year anyway.
Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
Here is what aberrans looks like now when we get 20-25C in day and 8-12C at night:
Does she flower every season or not?
