    schloaty, Interesting theory. Is it proven?

    Well my hypothesis is this:

    I think the quick closure could be a combination of 'expansion' and 'shrinkage' as opposed to just growth on the outside. Instead of just the outside expanding, I believe the inside also shrinks. Basically, the inside cell's pushing fluids into the outside cells triggered by some electric surge. After time goes by (maybe after some chemicals break down), they transfer the fluids back, but this transfer is not without cost, possibly some buildup of by products slow the transfer each time till it becomes ineffective.

    I think this is more plausible because to get the same change, in the angle of the trap, the inside and outside only have to change half as much as the just the 'outside' theory.

    If I'm wrong, please let me know.

    uglypho you made sense, I never knew that, and I loved venus flytraps since I was pretty small but never had too much luck with them.
