    I tried drie freezing pitchers of N. sanguinea, it dind'y worked out very good, they still have their shape, well sort of, but they aren't nice to look at. But once I cutted back my N. ventricosa, I took some cuttings and I threw the rest away in the garden... 2 weeks later I found a perfectly conserved N. ventricosa pitcher...

    i tried putting a N. Miranda pitcher in the toaster oven for over 3 hours at ~200 degrees, it's color was dulled and it's fragile. It retained it's shape well, though parts of it are warped. I don't recommend this method...

    I'm wondering if it's possible to preserve a pitcher in a "castin' craft CLEAR liquid plastic CASTING RESIN".

    There are a lot of florist that do professional freeze drying (also known as lyophilization). If you do a google for freeze dried flowers you'll come up with links like this. Who knows, you may even find a local florest that does lyophilization.
