Cephalotus questions

Just yesterday I got a cephalotus, and I have repotted it in
long-fiber sphagnum. It seems to be very healthy, but I'm still
concerned about keeping it alive.
I've read that this one needs to be watered less in the winter, but
that seems to be only if it's subjected to lower temperatures. I was
planning to place mine in a terrarium where it would have relatively
even temperatures year 'round, so I'm not sure whether I should give
it less water then or not.
I've also just gotten a U. dichotoma: any suggestions on this one?
Does it prefer to be kept very wet, or does it like it drier?
