Well the humidity hasnt changed but on some days, its foggier than others. Today, the hygro read 80% and the glass was totally clear. However, it was foggy when I went to bed and it was reading 80% then too. Is this normal?

Yeah, is ok, as I said dont let it drive you insane :).
My small frog tank has not been misted for a week and humidity is still above 90%. Sometimes it is foggy others not. The "fog" also depends on temperature made from the light. I have notices that after the lights are out and the tank chills a bit it becomes more foggy.

OK, So i ordered my plants and they are arriving today. However, the store owner told me, explicitly, that terrarium growth could be dangerous for these plants. He is telling me that in his experience, terrarium growth often works for a couple of months and then fail because of various components like salt in the substrate, he noted that cocofiber is not good for the plants long term, especially the venus fly trap, and that terrarium temperatures can get too hot for the plants.

SO I have opted for a pure sphagnum moss substrate, but now I am concerned about the nutrient content of the substrate. Will I need to feed more because the substrate has no nutrients of its own now? I know carnivorous plants don't usually take a lot from the substrate but they do still work on some nutrients and I know that sphagnum moss does not have a lot of nutrients, if any, since it kinda just works like a sponge?

I heard of ppl using peat moss for substrate but never spagnum moss... That sphagnum moss you buy is just dead dry moss, it cant support the roots or the plants, it's to ... soft and not compact nuff to be a good basis for support. And it will rot like there's no tomorow.
But it is your call.

Well the instructions are to really pack it around the roots. I'm gonna give it a try, if they don't do as well as I thought, ill put it in the peat.
