I see a lot of people responding and saying the humidity is too low. I disagree 100%.
40-50% humidity is just fine. My average humidity is 35%.
It is true that when you receive the plant from a nursery that has been growing the plants in higher humidity then you are giving it, the plant will respond negatively. Most likely lose it's pitchers and sulk. Some people may leave them in these conditions a few more weeks and say to themselves, I need more humidity and change it's conditions, or change it immediately saying OMG my plants dying.
It seems people want the plants to respond positively, immediately. Neps do things on a much slower time scale. In my experience it takes around 3 months to see a nep adjusting positively to lower humidity conditions. it will typically start to inflate it's first pitcher around this time.
Here are some old threads with pictures of some of my neps I have grown, or still growing in 35% humidity. They just take time to adjust.

Mostly any lowland nep should do well in there as long as you can maintain the temps and the humidity. Different nep species also like different light levels, so check that too.Wikipedia has a nice list with all the Nepenthes species so check them out.
