I just bought a lime twist from ebay, you should check there, the seller seems to have a lot.

The OP is in the UK/EU, I don't think the seller ships there. However, there are plenty of great CP sites to buy from in Europe, just a quick google search should give you tons. An adult raff might cost you a bit though, why not start small?

I am a relatively new collector and I grow my plants indoors (most of them facing a windowsill) using nothing like a terrarium or a humidifier, so I am not looking for young plants which usually require more attention at the growing conditions provided and do not forgive mistakes. Instead, adult plants usually tolerate lower humidity levels or wrong temperatures for longer periods, giving a starter like me the time to think what is going wrong. This is my personal oppinion, if someone has a different one I would really appreciate his/her help. Thank you !!

In this case, you probably want to start with easy highland species like N. sanguinea, N. ventricosa, N. maxima, or hybrids such as N. x miranda or N. x ventrata. N. rafflesiana needs high humidity, ideally 70-80 percent, as well as temps in the 80's during the day and around 70 at night. N. ampullaria is also a lowlander, and although I have heard of it doing OK on a windowsill, it should be kept in similar conditions to rafflesiana.
