I dunno, average lowest winter temperature around Albany is 8.1°C (46.6°F).
There are dozens of microclimates around Los Angeles - just a zip code zone apart can make a difference. Refer to the Sunset climate zones for better detail:
Or this snazzy interactive version of the USDA plant hardiness zone map:
Being about a mile from the ocean puts me in hardiness zone 11a (or adjusted to 10b) and Sunset zone 24.
Cephalotus don't seem to require massive amounts of sunlight, unlike Sarracenia. It depends on how you want to grow them - more light more color (red) smaller pitchers. Less light less color bigger pitchers. The east facing windowsill gets 2-3 hours of direct sunlight daily but since the building next door is painted white fairly bright reflected light in the afternoons.
Mix is similar to the "Charles Brewer" recipe documented on some of the sites referred to above. Plant is still in the same pot as when I got it.
