    I can't offer much advice on growing indoors on a windowsill in the Southwest. Maybe some of the growers from that area can comment on exposure, humidity range etc. Also need to keep in mind any humidity modifying equipment running in your house!.. fancy talk for humidifiers/dehumidifiers/AC during the summer/Heat during the winter etc etc. Usually less of an issue with a terrarium, although some things like lighting can become more of an issue.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Gracilis

    Alata Lowland form

    Reinwardtiana

    Truncata

    Hirsuta

    Thorelli

    Keep in mind that all of these require high humdity warm temps. Truncata can grow in a hous with 50% humdity but I am keeping mine in a plastic bag after a long cease in growth when the humdity dropped to 30% for about a week.

    maxima lowland
    merrilliana (will get very large but takes a looooong time, stays squat for the most part)
    albo marginata (will vine eventually but doesn't get overly large diameter)
    bellii (will vine but cutting back is not a problem, fairly small diameter)
    distillatoria (very sensitive to cold and low humidity, very good terrarium plant.. not too wide and vines slowly)

    Plus all the others that have been mentioned. There are also lots of hybrids to choose from.
