because, if you think about it, it is a bit true
take a look at the bettas at those chain pet stores, 95% of them are not going to be building bubble nests. Maybe if they hired employees whom actually care about the fish, then MAYBE the bettas will make a bubble nest, but then again, those cups provide next to no stimuli for the fish.
Not to mention, usually when the bettas are building a bubble nest, their environment has:
correct water parameters
Also keep in mind what can make a betta build a nest in a poor environment:
female next door neighbor
sometimes a male next door neighbor
boredom (some are actually smart enough to do something constructive when bored)
sudden change in environment (good or bad)
I have a bad habit to going completely off topic xD
Anyhow, back on topic a wee bit. I'm trying SUPER hard to get a picture of Spike inside his croc skull for y'all.
