Cephs are good resurrection plants. I had one that I was certain I croaked by placing it outside in the spring with no acclimation. Since I also had some VFTs in the tray, I just left it there. Mid-summer, it sent up a new leaf & took off. D. regia & others with the big, thick roots can often come back from an 'oops'.
So far, my record is U. longifolia. I gave away my plant because it was not growing well. Eight months later, I notice a small strap leaf in the moss in the bottom of the tank - sure enough - U. longifolia. A tiny bit must have escaped from the original pot and slowly started growing ...
It's tough throwing out 'dead' plants after having a few experiences of them resurrecting. Recently I tossed a D. regia & my 'mother' D. schizandra after many months of waiting for them to come back. Real bummer. That D. schizandra has provided all of the small plants, I've traded for the past few years (30+). Hopefully some of the small ones will keep growing and take her place....
All the best,
