    I think they also have a VFT called rose or something like that that has no traps at ALL just leaves!
    I recently read this (about Werewolf) on another forum:
    Most of Werewolf traps don't produce any trigger hair but the one that do may close if there are stimulated for long period of time.

    And I found a VFT var. that does not produce traps. Meet Dr no trap:

    Real cool, I always liked the look of them, nice to know they can feed. I really don't have interest in a VFT that can't feed. Thanks for sharing the photos!

There are also many more with defective traps including a few completely trapless clones like "Dr. No Trap".

    Why most of these are not culled immediately is beyond my reckoning.
    According to a vendor of VFTs who was talking about these on his forum, alien actually is a surprisingly successful hunter, it closes so slowly that bugs don't realize that there's a problem until it is way too late

    I think some look cool, but I really have no interest in growing a Venus Fly TRAP that can't trap. As for trapless types, not sure I see the point. Maybe it's something vegetarians would be comfortable growing? :P

    I agree. And I don't think they are very popular for that reason.

    That made me do a real "LOL"! That is quite an interesting bit of information!

    Nothing wrong with posting on this, as the topic is still relevant. I started this thread anyway and I say it's alright.

    Actually I've found that to be the case with my alien. but you have to let it happen naturally for the bug to be unsuspecting, if you drop a bug in the trap it panicks and the trap is to slow...2
