    Large flies may be too big for smaller sized cape sundews to catch. The leaves may not have a strong enough "glue" to catch the house flies when the plant is outdoors in low humidity. The "glue" on the leaves may have evaporated during the day.

    Also, imagine all the other tantalizing things in your backyard that the flies may have wanted to alight upon... The sundew was not the only thing that was pretty or nice smelling... ^_^
