So if you have decent warm days (82-85) and nice cool nights (58-60)you can grow a large variety of Nepenthes all together.
    The average temp year round in my house is about 70-72F, right in the middle of the range you mention. So does that mean I can grow about anything, or do most neps actually need a drop in temperature at night to do well?

    Lowland don't need a drop in temperature, highland do. Does your house warm up during the day? If it is a steady 70-72 all day and night most of the year then it is on the cool side for lowland. And not cool enough for highland (regardless if it warms up during the day).
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    In the summer, it is currently set for 74 day and night. In the winter it is usually about 68-70 in the day and a few degrees cooler at night.(these temps can be remedied somewhat, however, if needbe, via a wonderful invention called a thermostat.

That may help with temperature regulation some. So yes, the temperature does fluctuate some.
