The internet is always a good place to check though I have found some errors in material on some sites. [Moral of the story is try to double check info whenever possible.]

There doesn't seem to be much in the way of current literature out there, unfortunately. But some books that have been found by forum members are:

"Terrariums & Miniature Gardens"(Sunset-1974) The gardens are mostly bottles. Good description of how to make one.

"Fun with Terrarium Gardening" by:Virginie & George A. Elbert (1973) There are some dry terrariums in this book (cacti) And some ideas like a coffee table and a dining room table w/ a terrarium in it. The pictures in this book are nice, some are in color.

"The Savage Garden" Considered by many to be the definitive text on growing carnivorous plants.

"Tarantulas and Other Arachnids" Samuel D.Marshall ISBN# : 0-7641-1463-8 It has a really good section about building housing for tarantulas, temp., humidity, substrate, with or without plants.
