My last questions. Do you keep them in a tray of water? Does it need the same amount of sun as a VFT? Should I keep the top of the pot open? Should I mist it often? Can I plant it in a net pot? Will feeding it this early result in faster growth?
Without knowing the species, it's impossible to know if dormancy is required.
Most Drosera, including Sub-Tropical tolerate shorter photoperiods and cooler temperatures over Winter, so you won't hurt it by subjecting it to these conditions.
I keep my Drosera in water trays year round but with less water in the tray over Winter.
With few exceptions, Drosera appreciate full sun or as much light as you can give them.
Usually, you want to keep the pot top open to allow air circulation and prevent mold/fungus growth.
Misting is not needed. If there is enough light, the plant will produce dew.
I have no opinion on net pots, I never used them.
Feeding them will help growth, BUT extra care is needed to avoid over-feeding them. My rule of thumb is to feed a leaf with a bug that covers 25% of a leaf's surface area.
Growing techniques vary tremendously from person to person.
These answers are my personal opinion, nothing more.
I just thought I'd toss in my two cents worth.
