    Parrot Pitcher, Sarracenia psittacina, is is one of the smallest, if not the smallest (Googled it). It gets only 6 inches and can be vigorous it seems: http://pics.futuresystems.com/psittacina2.jpg

    It has similar colors to Purpurea so I am not sure if it is the type you are looking for.

    Well one, you won'd a species with those characteristics, you might have a lot more luck with hybrids. Two, I hope you don't them small in order to grow them indoors...

    Sarracenia rubra is generally the shortest species..
    grows upright, but seldom taller than 8 to 12 inches..

    I agree, rubra ssp. rubra if you're looking for an upright pitcher. "Cobra nest" or "Red bug" if you're looking for an upright hybrid.

    I think that rubra ssp. wherryi is significantly smaller than rubra ssp. rubra. My wherryi gets to about eight inches tops; rubra is more like 18.
    You could also probably find some yearling plants that aren't full sized yet. Grow them while they're still juveniles, and then trade them for new baby plants when they start to get too big. You can grow any variety you want that way, and chances are you'll be able to get several young plants for each adult so it's a good way to build a collection.
