    I think N adnata would do well in those conditions. It won't grow too big too quickly, and it likes shady positions.

    N.Longifolia
    N.Hirsuta
    N.Ampullaria
    N.Rafflesiana typical form or red squat no giant forms!
    N.Gracilis not the nigrapurpurea variety or black forms which require much more light.

    Yes Adnata will do good also as Joel mentioned. It is a nice compact and quite uncommon Nepenthes.

    I am guessing intermediate to lowland conditions?

    I would add
    N. bellii
    N. distillatoria
    N. campanulata
    N. merrilliana (small one will stay a managable size for quite some time)

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

    Exotic Gardens (PFT) carries some Nepenthes and have very nice plants at reasonable prices. There are also other nurseries online but it would not be appropriate to post links/names in this forum. If there is a specific plant you want that Exotic Gardens does not carry.. send me a message.
