    N. argentii, N. glabrata in the HLers and N. bellii is a good nep that stays small, but N. bellii is a LL.

    N. bellii-button!

    N. tentaculata generally stays pretty compact, and can produce a ton of pitchers.

    Among all of those, I would say that N. argentii is the most temperamental. It has a very narrow range of conditions that it likes...and if it is disturbed once, good luck trying to get it back into good growing phase. I did disturb it and haven't seen proper pitcher/leaf production / rate of growth for over an year.

    N. argentii is temperamental to change in conditions, but that being said, mine that I just received has put out a new leaf at a rate that I wasn't expecting! So it can or can not be really difficult to grow for some people, but regardless, whether it is thriving or struggling it will be a very small Nepenthes.

    Also, I've heard that N. talangensis remains somewhat smaller than most Nepenthes for a long time. But as others have said, N. glabrata and N. tentaculata are two other safe bets.
