For me Cephs have been very easy. The biggest factor IMO is to set them up in a good soil mix. In my experience they like a well drained mix (equal parts red lava rock, perlite, peat, sphagnum) so that you can water them pretty heavily and two days later they will be starting to dry. They also have good aeration through the pot while maintaining moisture deep down using this mix.
I have mine sitting along with my tropical sundews on my indoor growshelf under LED. I am getting a new fixture soon , but you can grow cephs even under some cheap $22 Yescom panels. I water mine when the top of the soil is dry and feed the pitchers with maxsea once they open.
I also have some recent propagations in a peat heavy mix, and another in pure LFS. If you are careful not to overwater them these mixes work just fine, although they are not my preferred soil mix/soil dynamics, so I repot all the cephs I buy once they start putting out adult pitchers.
