Where do I even begin???

No stickies for us noobs??
So I am looking to expand my knowledge a little outside of the planted tank arena and I remembered a terrarium set up I had as a kid.I might consider a frog or something but the focus (as it is with aquariums) would be plants.
Any links or tips you might share to help someone just starting out?
I know when it came to planted tanks I could have saved alot of headaches by researching. I am not afraid of DIY!
So is a habitat like Exo-Terra the way to go or can I get decent set up using an aquarium?
Lighting?
Point me in the right direction to get me started!
thanks,
Nate

Dendro board, or whatever it is. Lot's of frog people there, this place is mostly shrimp people.

Check out Hydrophyte. He's very knoledgeable about terrariums. One of his guides:

These may give you a few ideas.
They can be scaled back for small size tanks.
