The fact that it's a Drosera associated with Florida really is a very important factor in why I want that one more than others. It may be silly but I'm old enough to not care if my desires are silly hehe. I really appreciate it, and if I ever get seeds from mine I'd be happy to trade one day but right now I have to get as close to my vision as is at all possible and not let myself look left or right from it. I hope that makes sense but thank you anyway

Subrosa, if it is dim enough with that lamp I do have only 9:54 H:MM of sun at the solstice with several days of less than 10 hours so maybe that will suffice for dormancy needs?
If it's dim enough the plant will lose its leaves and form a hibernaculum for the winter.

So I guess as winter approaches it will lose its leaves like any deciduous plant and just stop growing and sit in a state that could be confused for being dead until some time in spring, and if that doesn't happen due to the light or other reasons it will lose vigor year over year?

That's right. It should form a hard little bud.
