That's not exactly true. All you need is to simulate fall conditions, which means shorter, and cooler days. Things that can be easily done by putting plants on a sunny windowsill.
As to what I wouldn't recommend. I wouldn't recommend Darlingtonia, Heliamphora, lowland neps, tuberous drosera, and petiolaris sundews... At least until you have some practice growing carnivorous plants.
I put lowland neps, because they require constantly high temps/humidity unlike highland neps which need the 10°F drop in temp at night.
The same could be said of petiolaris sundews, which are also have similar requirements to lowland neps.
Heliamphora have similar requirements to highland neps, but are somewhat finicky(and expensive,) but if you have to have a Heliamphora get a hetarodoxa x minor or a minor.
Darlingtonia require a winter dormancy and cool roots throughout their growing season.
Tuberous drosera require a summer dormancy, and a cool winter to grow properly so you might have issues growing them.
