Hey Megan. You'll enjoy your Ceph. they are quite a special plant. In my opinion, FTS Cephs. are usually pretty hardy plants and ship very well. My advice to you is when you get it cover it until you noticeably see new growth. When you cover it make sure that you do not have it where it can be baked. What I've done in the past with freshly shipped Cephs is put a small clear pot of cup over the top. I elevate the cup so it gets a little air flow but still keeps the humidity up. Being shipped they lose the juices inside their pitchers (spills out) so they dehydrate a lot quicker and most Cephs the FTS sells still usually have a majority of immature pitchers, which makes it difficult to refill them. That is why I like to cover them when I get them shipped to me. By the time I see new growth, usually the pitchers have produced their pitcher's fluid back and it is ready to start acclimating it to lower humidity levels. I'm pretty sure you know how to do that. In my growing conditions I find them much like a flytrap. They can stand much drier soil conditions then other CP. Being winter I'm sure its cooler in your house so make sure you do not keep consistently wet. Let the top layer dry out before watering it again which being covered should take a while. There are many success stories here with Cephs so don't be scare to ask questions. We all want you to have success with them.

I forgot to mention. I did several leaf cuttings this past year. Close to 20 and every single one of them were successful. I used milled dried sphagnum and sand or fine perlite. I plant the leaf as low as I can into the sphagnum with the leaf blade as close to the sphagnum as possible basically laying on top. This keeps the leaf from dehydrating and allows for longer time to callus and strike. I placed all my cutting in a tray and kept about a quarter inch of water in the tray. The pots I used were two inch square pots. If you get some non-carnivorous leaves I'd try it. I haven't done to many pitcher cuttings but I've seen it work the same way. I just like to see the pitchers and rather cut the leaves.
