Hi Harris, I think youve already asked me this question!

But anyway.

About 3-4 times, and yes id class a teeth dont meet close as a close, but maybe wont use so much energy as it does tighten.

Yeah, ive gathered that within the time youve been on the fourm :lol:

Allens had to leave the forum, but he's left an email address if you still want to chat to him. He was a brilliant addition to the forum though, a real shame he had to go.

Why did you ask him that? Nono, no playing with guns harris. Yahoo answers. hes not the only one with a gun.
I have had a Big Mouth that closed about 4 or 5 times. But its usally 2 with all my plants. then after a while that trap dies, an no a new one does not take its planc. the new traps are already growing, so its not 1 dies one comes.

I remember seeing a video clip on YouTube in which a guy did an
experiment.

He video recorded triggering a trap on his VFT.
I think he did it around 10 times.

I remember reading some of the comments criticizing him for doing such
a thing on his VFT. Hehe!

Uuuggh, I can't remember the link to that video. I should've bookmarked it.

If anyone knows that video link here, it would be awesome.

I think if it catches a bug it will open and close 3 and a half times
the fourth time i think it might catch the bug then die b4 it opens back up

I found the YouTube video! Whew!

Got a headache searching for it.
I was about to give up and go to sleep,
but I found it. Hehe!

The guy triggered the trap 12 times.
He made a recording everytime he triggered the trap.

Here's the video.

Some traps can close several times when the plant is kept in good conditions. A guy on the polish forums did it 19 times. I was never bored enough to do such observations myself:D
