They need warm/hot conditions year round.  And they get big, really big.

No, but it's going to give you better results. On a regular windowsill it will grow very slowly and won't consistently form pitchers (not that you would really notice the special characteristics the first couple of years). Anything is possible, but everything requires a compromise.

These nepenthes do grow very slow. By the time you have one of these pitchers, you are a few years ahead, and they are not that easy to grow imo.

I used to have one, impossible to fit in a windowsill, 3 ft diameter plant, heading towards 4ft diameter when i killed it.

I keep a Bicalcarata in my terrarium, it's just got its first proper fanged pitchers this year.  So far, it seems quite easy to keep as long as it's warm and humid it's quite happy.
