    What flytraps cannot trap?

    What flytraps cannot catch food?

    From what I gather, these cannot catch insects:
    Wacky traps
    Korean Melody Shark
    Any fused tooth traps
    Any ultra large traps
    Angel Wings
    Cup type traps

    What others have difficulty catching their own food?

    Some can be fed (and "massaged") in order to use their traps, are there any that don't have use of their traps even to feed?

    I haven't noticed that any of my larger varieties like 'B52' or 'King Henry' have any trouble capturing prey.

    Some really bad ones that come to mind though are 'Alien', 'Angelwings', 'Biohazard', 'Coquillage', 'Fondue', "Galaxy", "Hot Kiss", 'Master of Disaster', 'Microdent', "Monkey *****", "Pacman", "Pom Pom", 'Red Fused Petiole', 'Short Teeth', "Tremor", 'Trichterfalle', 'Triton' and 'Umgekrempeit'. 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.

    I've had Dionaea 'Cupped Trap' catch things on its own with no outside assistance.

    I've got Korean Melody Shark and it can trap prey just fine.

    Korean melody shark, fuzzy tooth and cupped trap can catch insects . Wacky traps can close its trap but takes a long time and insects can escape easily
    Cheers

    Super big traps can function like any normal flytraps. But there's some case where the traps release insects that are really small as it is not worth digesting- more energy consumed digesting than to reap from the insects
