Bowl by window?

So I was thinking about putting a bowl with a tiger lotus on my window sill, what should i worry about? I'm thinking its going to get lots of algae, but I guess another concern is direct sunlight causing the temp to get too high in the tank as well.

Any ideas or suggestions? Or should i just ditch the window idea?

Also, what size bowl/tank would minimize this temp fluctuation?

if there are no fish to create nitrates then i dont think algae will be a huge issue.

the temp flux wont be an issue for the plant so long as water levels are maintained.
If you leave it unattended to over a few days, it may run dry.
