    there are plenty-o-threads that deal with with this. each works for that grower's specific needs, so what works for one might not work for the other.

    but here's mine:


    and the whole shabang:


    t5 lights, two hygrometers on the ends of the tank, w/ two ultrasonic humidifiers---and a squirrel fan to top off. location is on a poorly insulated windowsill which allows for phenomenal temperature swings.

    Well what are you growing? You're talking about planting for spring, but it also seems like you're asking about setting things up indoors. Up in your area you're probably going to need a sheltered location if you want grow temperate plants like flytraps or Sarracenia outside of the warm season. It takes a little extra work to get those plants through the winter that far north - but on the other hand your long summer days can grow some really impressive flytraps. If you're growing tropical species like Nepenthes or most Drosera, it's mostly a matter of shelf space. If your home is dry you might need a terrarium for finicky plants like Neps, but most Drosera and other common CPs are very forgiving as long as they receive good light and appropriate watering.
    I suggest getting some of the big wire shelving units you see many people here using: like these here
    And some four-foot shoplights. (Why four-foot lights? They're the kind that get used in offices and big buildings, so they're cheaper than smaller bulbs because they sell in bigger quantities.) T8 or T12 are both good - whichever you get go for the highest wattage available (40W on most T12s, I think... dunno about T8s.) If you can afford to invest in high output T5 fixtures, they're worth it in the long run, but kind of pricey for someone just starting out.
    From there you can grow a lot of good stuff. If your air is too dry for some plants, there are various ways to set up a terrarium, but I'd suggest learning what you can do without one before going down that road.
    Best luck,

    It's nothing fancy, but here is mine:





    A lot of things are in baggies right now--there are a few pots of sundew seedlings, several pots with freshly sewn gemmae, and a number of new neps that are currently acclimating.

    Temperatures are in the high seventies to low sixties. For light, I have dome clamp lamps with 26W daylight fluorescent bulbs hooked up to timers plus a little sunlight comes in through the window (trees block most of the sunlight, especially in the summer). Humidity is whatever it is in the room with a little boost from the sphagnum. Everything is stacked ghetto style on books and plastic bins. And that's pretty much it. Like I said; nothing fancy

    This is my humble setup. It's pretty simple. Terrarium with three lights two of which are CFL and one that is a "plant bulb." I cover the whole thing with a plastic bag to keep in the humidity. I increase the humidity with my awesome Japanese mister.



    I like planting plants inside the sphagnum moss and I try to keep the bottom completely covered with live moss. I also planted some Utrics and a dew or two in there just for fun. Notice how I have a lot of the pots helter skelter on top of one another and such.... I'm not very organized at the moment. But as soon as the bicalcarata comes out I will do some major changes.



    Jacquelineae and bicalcarata pitchering next to each other.
