Thank you everyone for the awesome input. I now have one of the most well-rounded and substantiated perspectives on Cephalotus substrate in the world.
Perhaps if any of you have any pics of your plants that could give a good idea to not only what soil mix you are using but how well it is working?
I will be sure to document what soil mix I use and then hopefully I will update the thread in a few months just to show how progress is with the new mix.

Over the years I've been moving towards more inorganic mixes. Currently I'm about 1/3 peat to 2/3 turface and that seems to work really well for my conditions. I should add that I've also moved up in pot sizes and with smaller pots this mix may not work very well.
Here is my newest oddity that is working well for me, these are seed starting sponges you can get at most online seed sellers. The main issue is that I can not seem to locate a larger sponge than 1.5" and for long term growth that just is not enough. However, for packing/shipping its the best growing method I've found.

Basically the sponge fits into Styrofoam blocks that float on the water and stay at the same moisture.
