My Fly Traps were not happy. They didn't stop growing but I got a few deformed traps and what seems to be burnt edges. We are back to a steady 90F and the plants are happier. That said my plants get direct sunlight from 7am to 2pm and then shade after that. I lost some leaving them out all day and night giving them a break from the afternoon sun. I let the water dry out.
D. intermedia can handle pretty high water levels also which makes it easy enough to randomly give them a good flooding - in NC as a native species you can often see them submerged in water with just the tips of leaves protruding out all over. flytraphunter posted some photos of some near him a while back showing them all waterlogged

The vast majority of days July and August break 95°and my plants do fine (we have ~70 days a year over that threshold). Sure, they don’t hold nearly as many traps as they do in the spring/fall/winter, but they still grow well. They don’t color up as well when it’s hot and don’t grow quite as fast, but they are still healthy. I’ve never seen many deformed traps in the middle of summer in all my years of growing — so it’s probably just something random that caused it in yours.
