Saw a few cephs in my local plantstore, thought they were neps at first, I wanted to ask if anyone here have experience with them before adding one to my collection.

Any links to care guides will be very appreciated! :)

I have no links, but I do have a Cephalotus that's been with me a few years (and dealt with a house move). It gets watered whenever dry, never sitting in water, sits on a bright windowsill, and gets fed the occasional ant. No issues with humidity or temperature so far, it's had hot 80+ degree summers and colder winters (never freezing though). Seems to be a pretty tolerant plant.

I've never been a big fan of Cephs but the ones I grow are easy-peasy. Pretty much stick them in a bright place, that's not too warm (or cold), water them once in a while and otherwise forget about them, and they grow great. They grow well as window plants, outside or under lights. Honestly, they aren't really all that hard to grow.
