    I see you are asking for lighting help as well. Lights put out alot of heat. I suspect that once you have your lights installed you will find that it is plenty warm inside your rack when the lights are on. It would be great to keep it nice and toasty warm during the night as well but many Nepenthes are quite adaptable and will still do ok with less than ideal conditions. Lowland plants in particular can manage as long as the day temperature is nice and warm, they will deal with night temperatures on the cool side.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Your LFS (local fish shop) should have submercible aquarium heaters.

    Ugghhh.... I'm getting so confused! Should I just go with the cheaper submersible aquarium heater in a big jar of water, or do I need to search everywhere for a heat pad?

    I would wait and get your lighting system in first and then see how things go with the temperatures after they are all operational
