Drosera sewelliae is native to Western Australia near Perth where it can be found growing in laterite and silica sand soils. The pygmy sundew produces bright orange flowers that are often larger than the plant itself. During the dry summers, D. sewelliae goes dormant. However, once fall arrives with increased moisture, active growth resumes and the plant begins to produce gemmae.

Water: Keep soil wet during active growth and slightly damp during summer dormancy, provide water that is low in salts and minerals such as rain or distilled water
Dormancy period: If kept consistently wet, most pygmy sundews grow well year round and don’t require a dormant period. However, watering less in the summer can help induce dormancy. Shortening the photoperiod in the fall will encourage gemmae production.
