    I think it depends a lot on how much maintenance you're willing to do. Some species can be kept at a manageable size with pruning, such as N. ampullaria, but on their own wouldn't really qualify as small for long. There are also some species with small leaves/pitchers that will manage to throw vines all over the place if you let them. I don't think there are too many Neps that just don't get tall - mostly just ones that take a long time to do so.
    My N. ventricosa x inermis has stayed pretty compact, as has my DeRoose's N. alata (when it isn't vining.) If something ends up being too tall you could always make cuttings and give away the rootstock.

    Be aware that highlanders can be fussy about conditions though. My glabrata just sits doing nothing.
