This is a good article from a reputable source. It mentions some cultivars that are not so tall, which would be important:

I think the potentially most difficult problem to solve would be getting it enough light, so you might want to invest in artificial light, perhaps several spotlights that can be turned as it grows. All tropical plants like more humidity than Denver indoors, especially in the winter, provides.

Best of luck.
