I am a new carnivorous plant grower on a tight budget with two growing spaces: out side or on a windowsill. I live in zone 6b so any plants that are outside would have to either be hardy to 6b, be able to be overwintered in the refrigerator, or be able to survive my windowsill.
My windowsill gets strong afternoon sunlight from 4-7:30, maybe a bit less in the winter. It is west-facing. I already have a Drosera adelae, some Drosera spatulata, a few Sarracenia, and one Nepenthes.

Any suggestions on what to grow?

Utricularia calycifida and drosera schizandra assuming your temps are ok for these species

That might be too much light for U. calycifida actually, though there's only one way to find out. It sounds great for Nepenthes though.

Many species of Nepenthes can tolerate low lighting. One good example will be Nepenthes Ampullaria.
