    Window sills are fine for a time, but in our temperate zone they stop pitcher in from fall through spring, ~6 months, without artificial lighting to supplement what they are not getting.

    I have had 2 raff growing on windowsills just fine. One is just a small plant ~10cm across the other was 60cm tall and about the same across...

    I seem to recall that elgecko's 'magic window' conditions are in this ballpark.

    Here's what happened to mine when I moved it to a very un-humid window after terrarium life:

    - immediately dried out leaves, curled up to a crisp. The new tendril stayed hydrated though.
    - After something like 3 months, the leaf had opened all the way.
    - maybe 6 months after moving it to the sill, it sent out a pitcher.
    - Continued to grow slowly, sending out a pitcher every 4 months or so. The pitchers were HUGE though.

    So basically it will probably survive and pitcher for you, but not like the ones you see in the hothouses.
