    The leaves on my darlingtonia are starting to shrivel and die and I donít know why
    The plant gets plenty of light, high humidity and a cool root system
    So what could be the reason of that?

    Is your plant inside or outside? If outside, I would check for parasites. Also, where in the world are you? Or is your plant near an AC vent? Darlingtonia require dormancy, so if it is somewhere that it is chilly, it could be fooled into thinking winter is coming...

    The lack of dormancy is probably a contributing factor. Also, Darlingtonia do best as an outdoor plant, similar to that of VFT's and Sarracenia. But don't just stick it outside. It needs to be acclimated, if you should decide to put it outside.
