    It's just a typical supermarket vft under some stress after being grown in the less than ideal conditions. For it to be a cup trap vft, all of them has to be cupped shape. I currently grow both tamlins form and the regular cup form and all of them never made true regular traps, although the tamlin's form makes non carnivorous leaves sometimes w/o a trap altogether.
    I thought you people where \"Plant Geeks\", Look at me Now...

    I also say it's just a typical.
    My Cup Trap has never made a normal trap on it.

    That's good to know. My plant makes 2 to 3 leaves a year without traps.

    That looks like a typical flytrap. Unless it is labeled as cup trap, it is probably just a normal flytrap. Cup trap does not produce normal traps for me.

    Thanks for all!
    There is not a odd trap, you can see others on the third photo. Totally, it have 6 cup on the whole plant.
    I think that is it a real cup trap which is not important.
    For me, I don't know. I just want to hear more advice and theory.
    We can learn more experience and view point from other peoples through discussion.
    In my experience , some clone haven't a mature form of traps under below conditions.
    1. After domancy.
    2. Sun light not enough.
    3. The baby plants.
    REF.
    I will know the real answer on future. Thanks!

    You have a regular form flytrap there, not a cup trap. Under stressful conditions regular form vft can and will produce mutant growth, but usually only temporarily. True mutant form cup trap vft do not usually produce the typical trap form which your plant is doing.

    hehe...embarrassingly, I have a typical VFT demonstrating nothing but cup traps, so my conditions must suck right now.

    but hey, i got it for $4.50 from Lowes so what can I say...

    The official cultivar description of 'Cupped Trap" was published in the September 2004 issue of CPN.
