    Haha... Well this wouldn't have to be genetically engineered... You could probably do the shaping pretty easily. Since it is a plant and not an animal, it is humane. It is, like I said, kinda an art form. Like bonsai shaping.

    Well I bet if you could find a tight enough bottle and a big enough pitcher, you could probably make a Buddha shaped Nepenthes -- or some face. Maybe like the bear on they honey bottles... Stick the tendril through the spout and let it form, then before it opens, cut the honey bottle off and you'll have a cute little honey bear pitcher.

    You could probably shape something like Obama and grow a pitcher in it and sell it on eBay as a "rare obama-shaped carnivorous pitcher plant pitcher"...

    Back to the question on hand though, there is a very easy way to manufacture things easily and quickly: 3d printing. Now I know what you're thinking "Who in the world has a 3d printer?" Not a whole lot of people, but a whole lot of people want to. This is how websites like Shapeways.com and Sculpteo.com came to be. You could use these services to create a plastic piece to fit around the pitchers in various different sizes, but unfortunately not in any materials like silicone or rubber.

    pineapple, i think this is a cool idea and worth pursuing. of course we all love nepenthes' for what they are naturally but why not experiment with different shaping ideas also? i think you should do it and keep us updated!!
