Drosera fimbriataErect plants up to 10-15 cm. This species has a single, non-branched stem with terminal inflorescence. The lower part of the stem usually has 2-3 whorls of non-carnivorous leaves of unclear function. These non-carnivorous leaves are only found in D. fimbriata out of all tuberous drosera species which makes the identification of the plants easy. The upper part of the stem has several whorls with carnivorous leaves. However, adolescent plants may only develop the carnivorous leaves, not the non-canivorous leaves. Their absence in younger plants may therefore be misleading.
The flowers are white but the developing flower buds may have some pink on the outside of the petals. The tuber is orange.
