    One sundew you might like to try is D. intermedia 'Cuba'. Although the roots get very long after they grow for a while, it is generally a small plant.

    While the pygmy roots will be long, won't they just hit the bottom of the container and grow, you know, outward instead of downward?

    D. spatulata should be a safe candidate.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I will definitely try out a few easy species in order to improve the chances.
