If you're dead set on growing all these plants in one terrarium, i think it's best to simulate tropical climate.
I think a VFT and the temperate sundews tolerate tropical climate better than the tropical plants would tolerate a temperate climate. That's my two cents.
Furthermore, Nepenthes can get used to low humidity levels, but your pitchers wouldn't grow to their potential maximum size this way. So to avoid fungus, i would gradually lower the humidity levels. I've seen a site somewhere of a nursery that grew Nepenthes in relative humidity levels of ~30%.
So your terrarium should have tropical temperature levels, but temperate humidity levels..
