This past April I got the lowes terrarium set VFT & Sarracenia. The pitcher plant grew a stem but has seemed to of stopped growing. I thinking it might have died on me. See pictures

Green is good. Small sarrs don't necessarily put out a ton of new leaves when they are first transplanted or traumatized like the Lowes plants are. As long as the growth stays green and supple then it is most likely okay. You can also check by pulling some of the moss away and poking the rhizome to make sure it is good and solid. What conditions are you growing it in?

I bought one of these in December and now its finally but up growth over these past months looks to be a rubra or alata or perhaps a cross with one or the two???
