Welcome!

Probably Sarracenia purpurea. How big is it?

Yes, S. purpurea - probably var venosa.

If a person wants to grow a pitcher plant in a terrarium, this is probably the best species. Use bright grow lights - never put a terrarium where it can be hit by direct sunlight. It will overheat the terrarium and cook the plants.
