    From someone who grows a number of Neps in the windows here in the lab and at home I can offer the following up as recommendations if you can add a bit of supplemental light:

    N. fusca “Sarawak” (originally faizaliana ABG)
    N. veitchii “Stripped peristome; lowland”
    N. veitchii Clone F
    N. hamata
    N. lowii “Gunung Mulu” (Wistuba)
    N. clipeata
    N. clipeata “clone U” (Wistuba)
    N. rafflesiana “Singapore Giant“
    N. rafflesiana “red” (ABG 25 via AgriStarts)
    N. maxima
    N. sanguinea
    N. albomarginata “Green” TAHBWG TC
    N. bicalcarata TAHBWG TC
    N. mirabilis echinostomata TAHBWG TC
    N. ampullaria “Tayeve”
    N. cv. ‘Predator’
    N. cv. ‘Effulgent Koto’ (5778)
    N. cv. ‘Red Leopard’
    N. cv. ‘Ile de France’
    N. cv. ‘Black Dragon’
    N. cv. ‘Sabre’
    N. cv. ‘Red Dragon’
    N. cv. ‘Miranda’
    N. x Judith Finn
    N. (thorellii-JAM x LCS#1 superba-mixta) x 9/12/1983-LCS#1F albomarginata#1 (5850)
    N. (tobica x ovata) x veitchii
    N. spectabilis x veitchii H/L
    N. truncata x lowii
    N. maxima “dark” x truncata (probably cv. ‘Marbled Dragon’)
    N. thorelli x aristolochioides

    However, if size is an issue then you need to exclude the following as they have potential to get huge/tall very fast:

    N. veitchii Clone F
    N. rafflesiana “Singapore Giant“
    N. maxima
    N. sanguinea
    N. cv. ‘Predator’
    N. cv. ‘Effulgent Koto’ (5778)
    N. cv. ‘Ile de France’
    N. cv. ‘Miranda’
    N. x Judith Finn
    N. spectabilis x veitchii H/L
    N. thorelli x aristolochioides

    I'm no Nep expert, but wouldn't a 'Judith Finn' hybrid be a pretty tough customer in an office? Given some extra light and kept moist?

    Yes it could (hence my reason for listing it above.) Except it can and does get large pretty quick which might make it less ideal than some others that would remain smaller for longer

    I can recommend 'sabre' with some extra light in the winter. Fusca "flared peristome" took a while to adapt but otherwise pitchers steadily, even without light! Macfarlanei from BE seems to do well on my sill without light too. Truncata is good too, but it gets big. I don't know about hamata... it can be done, as elgecko proved, but it 's pretty iffy.

    Pyro I want your connections with the folks at ABG LOL Very nice list there.

    I think whatever you get her for the office is going to need extra lighting. So you will need to get her a light setup as well.

    Thanks for all the suggestions ... even the silk ones, LOL! Since I have a pair of N. ventrata (thanks JB), I guess I'll start trying with one of those and some supplemental light.
    Pyro, I didn't see N. ventrata on your list. Do you not recommend it or just haven't tried it in an 'office' environment?

    I bought a little desk lamp and a timer, put in a 100w CF bulb and was growing a N sanguinea and D capensis on the desk. It was a VERY dry office, but they seemed to be doing just fine...until a bunch of us had to get let go. So much for that experiment, but it was working quite well.
