Where to begin?

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Hope everyone is keeping safe and well in the current climate. 

I've recently been quite taken with nepenthes, and I'd like to set up a terrarium to house maybe 3-4 "easy" plants, that can give them enough space and proper care. 

Right now I have an X ventrata, which I've got in a container covered with cling film and a strong plant LED, but I'd like to explore options for a bigger set up. 

Where did everyone start off with their set ups? Can anyone give some helpful advice to a real newbie?

So far I've been looking at exo terra terrariums, but noticed they have mesh lids, so I'd have to get a glass one made, then lighting and whatnot. 

I'd figured with sticking to a nice display of easier plants, since I feel clueless just now. 

I've got my copy of The Savage Garden, but I haven't had a chance to delve into it so perhaps it'll also help along. 

I seen this image from a fellow member on the forum and it's very inspirational, not sure if I'd be able to replicate this so easily, but that's my ideal!
