    N. sanguinea does not get very large, and is easy to grow on windowsills.

    N.sanguinea gets huge actually, and fast. It is however another very easy beginner plant.

    Nearly all easy-to-grow Nepenthes are plants that will eventually get large. N. ventricosa and x "ventrata" will stay moderately compact for a while, but nearly all have the capacity to exceed 10 feet or more in length. The only truly small plants tend to be highlanders or difficult lowlanders, though some hybrids with these may be good choices.
    Humidity is an entirely different factor. Again, the easiest plants in this case will eventually get big.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    N. ventricosa is an all around excellent first Nepenthes to grow.

    Thanks for all the input! So far im liking Nepenthes maxima "mini" and Nepenthes Ventricosa the most. Out of these two options what will be best as an inside house plant? Thank you all so much

    They are both easily acclimated to indoor growing conditions, so it really boils down to whichever one appeals to you most.

    Take a look at one of those "Lady Luck" hybrids out there (Amp x Ventricosa), Native Exotics has a whole bunch. If not, maxima hybrids have always been the most resilient for me!
