My backyard is east facing so it will get morning sun, as partial shade the rest of the day. Does that should OK for them. I am also thing of getting some lights for inside.
I would bag it yeah, at least for a while. I wouldn't want to take the risk. Lights would be good as well. Cephalotus does well in some climates but I couldn't grow mine outside, at least long term. They need temp drops if it gets too warm but can apparently survive freezes. I think a lot of growers just keep them indoors under lights, myself included. Mine don't see huge variations in temperatures. I keep them around 75ish in the day and around 69 at night. Some claim they've had theirs out in up to 100 degree temps but needed a substantial temp drop at night to offset it. Growing them outside is out of my element though. I think @Nepenthes0260 and @Matt keep theirs in greenhouses all year. They'd be better with recommendations.
