    I think you want to look for more of an intermediate nepenthes because most lowlanders take hotter temperatures than you're likely provide in the winter, and possibly at night outside in the summers, to be truly happy. IMHO, you should look into all the nepenthes that flytrapshop has on offer because they'll probably do really well for you. I've had a ventricosa and sanguinea, like you're saying you will keep your plants, in Vermont and they did fine.

    Yeah definitely an intermediate would suit you better. Most lowlanders wont be able to take a New Jersey April. The plant would need to adapt to the lower temps and humidity for a long time.

    bical is an ultralowlander, not an intermediate....a few people have been able to grow it as such but it is definitely a lowlander
