Your current setup looks good for the ceph. Just don't over/under water it and it will grow just fine

Very nice choice. That's one of my favorite cultivars. The Fuzzy tooth I got from FTS has consistently had dramatic fusing of the teeth.

Yes, typical. We don't grow any Cephalotus cultivar and there is much debate about them, in general.

The cephalotus has lost a few pitchers but it looks fine overall.

The Fuzzy Tooth is likely not enjoying the transition from natural sunlight to artificial lighting.

And both plants look to me to be being kept a bit too wet. The moss on top should be barely moist to the touch, almost dry, especially when growing indoors. And the moss in the bottom of the pot should be damp, but not sitting in water and not holding too much water.
