    Well gathering your conditions are typical household with moderate humidity..

    N. xVentrata
    N. truncata
    N. maxima
    N. ventricosa
    N. khasiana

    I have grown others but from my experience these are usually worth trying on a windowsill. Just need to acclimate them carefully and be patient. They may not always pitcher ideally but all have grown without problems. Some of the other hybrids might be good candidates too but I have not tried them. But basically those that have a large proportion of the above mixed in should be good also.

    Tony, you mentioned maxima. I've read that there is high and low maxima. Which would be suitable for window?

    Guess it would depend on your local climate...

    I am up in the frigid North so highland forms would be better suited for me.. although I grow the lowland form in the greenhouse right next to the highland form and both seem to grow fine /shrug
