    Exactly, I grow mine with about 80F in the day and 50 ish at night, so pretty much like a Highland Nepenthes. I think you may be a bit on the warm side.

    Could it be that my lights aren't on long enough. They stay on for about 12 hours. It's a 10 gallon tank with 80 watts worth of cool white flourescent lights. The cephs are about 10 inches from the lights. Could any of this be a factor?

    80 watts is more than enough light for most CPs, including Cephs. Like you said, maybe it's that you need to keep your lights on longer each day. I keep mine on 16 hours a day and I get good growth.
