I have a purpea sarracenia and a sarracenia flava.  Kept in a terrarium with
the following

-10 gallon
-1 15 watt flourescent grow light (14 hour photoperiod) with relatively
direct sun from window sill
-watered overhead daily, while sitting in 1/2" water
-80-100% humidity at all times
-terrarium cover removed 30 minutes daily for air circulation.
-75-90 degrees f. during day, cooler at night
Sundew, lowland nepenthes, butterwort, etc.... seem to be fine, but my
sarracenia (American pitcher
plant) keeps growing pitchers with brown tops.

Any suggestions/advice are welcome.
