    If you see one called, "Tropical Pitcher Plant", it is likely a ventricosa or something comparably easy, like sanguinea. Go for it!

    Khasiana does get to a reasonable size, but it's just short of bulletproof.
    Ventricosa is next on the bulletproofness list
    these are the MOST TOLERANT.
    Others compatable with windowsills are: alata, sanguinea, maxima, burbidgeae, fusca, x Ventrata, x Emmarene, macfarlanei, and ephippiata. All of these are ones that i have grown on my windowsill successfully, except emmarene and khasiana. Both of those are VERY tolerant though.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    Quick word of caution on x'Miranda'....They actually do get fairly large. Mine is about 18" in diameter (at least...hard to tell with drooping leaves). I have it in a 10" hanging pot. Well worth it if you do have the space, though. Mine has produced pitchers in under 30% humidity. Now THAT'S tollerant!
