Here are a few threads I've posted about the various Vivariums I have set-up. I grow all my plants in vivariums of some type. Some of the tanks take alot of experience with the plants in the tanks to get them to grow where they are. So your milage will vary. For example, I can look at a section of driftwood and by the moisture it is wicking to that section I can tell what type of plants I can put there, years of trial and error allows me to grow things other will not be able to under the same conditions.
Ceph, growing in an open vivarium.
Growing Cephalotus follicularis on a Vertical Wall?
My newest one, just put the Ceph's in there. No where near finished.
New Vivarium Project.
Not a vivarium, but the container is inside a vivarium so it counts.
U. nephrophylla growing in some ADA aquasoil
A Ceph growing inside my main U. Graminifolia tank. It is still growing just VERY slow. Not a good envoirment for Cephs. Just trying to prove that Ceph roots in water are not the cause of rot . Its the lack of air to the roots in mixes that are not airy enough.
Cephalotus growing on some Driftwood
Another odd thing I've done, the VFTs seem to like this setup, Ping/Drosera not so much. Ceph's are doing just fine in there. Very wet mediums, again airflow to the roots appears to be preventing the Ceph rot, still too eary to tell but I have not lost one Ceph in there. Heli's are doing ok, not good.
Here is the main U. graminifolia tank, somewhere in that thread.
Utricularia graminifolia - My Experiences
Another little vivairum, it doesn't look like that now, I've moved alot of it around and sold the Ceph off.
I also took some normal peat/sand/perlite mix and lightly placed 1 1/2" of the medium in a 2.5g tank. The soil is NOT compacted at all. Wetted it to what I think is the perfect moisture. Added some U. sandersonii tiny tiny scapes, sealed up 99% of the tank and forgot about it. The sandersonii is easily 1000X what I put in there 3 months ago. I have yet to water it again.
If thats not enough information, check out the poison dart frog forums, they have a TON of information about growing plants in vivariums. Some CPs are covered too.
Hope some of this helps, CPs can be grown in vivariums BUT you have to do your research first and set up the tank for what your growing.

Took some quick (and bad) photos of a few vivariums. I really need to add backgrounds and clean the glass.
This is probably 1/3rd of what I have, the last few months I've been doing some very heavy dividing/selling/trading so I have space for the plants to grow out in the winter months. The other 9 months there is no where near that much unused space .
