A couple of pics from The Geinhouse:
C. follicularis, "vigorous" clone.
and a "Poi Dog" N. veitchii hybrid, possibly another seed grown N. Tiveyi?
I need to find the first pics I took of that C. follicularis from a year ago, so you can see how much it has grown since I got it. I think the "vigorous" clonal designation is apropos!

Go for it! I've found it to be a very easy plant to grow. I read all the available literature on its care and for the most part, it all agreed except when it came to soil recipes: many variations, but the theme was similar. (lots of coarse, fast-draining stuff, mostly sand and peat) I grew mine in a terrarium for a while at first, but moved them into my Nepenthes greenhouse in September and they clearly enjoy the greenhouse much more; three of my plants flowered/are flowering this spring!

Paul, cephs just won't grow in lowland tropics. There might be some heat resistant clones, but the one I have isn't growing well at all. The cuttings are doing well though, except they only produce miserable 1cm pitchers! And sadly, I don't know anything about ceph flowers, so can't help you there :/
