    That's a big question. The basics are a glass box with lighting. What specifically are you looking to do?

    ya what jbradt said. It really varies, you could have something as simple as a box with a light on top, or a terrarium with humidifier, ventilation, timers, etc.

    That's a relative question, really.

    You could either do this...



    Or this...



    Are you looking to just grow CP's? You could just grow them in a bare-bottom tank. Glass tank, glass lid, light -- that's it. Or did you want to keep things like dart frogs, as well as CP's? If you are looking to keep a terrarium with substrate, water features, frogs/snakes/ect, then you might want to sign up for www.dendroboard.com, a forum geared towards keeping dart frogs and other herps in realistic environments.

    1 Terrarium of any size.

    1 light that fits over most of the top, preferably T5, T12, or T10 bulbs.

    Fill with plants that are in pots that wont outgrow the terrarium any time soon.

    Or

    Plant the plants into your well thought out and elaborate vivarium that you are creating as in the first picture.

    If the OP is wanting to go that way, I STRONGLY suggesting joining dendroboard and seeing what others have done and checking youtube for tutorials. I tried a vivarium once and it didn't turn out the way I wanted. Carefully plan and build your vivarium slowly!!! It can't be achieved overnight. It will takes months of work to get it exactly how you want, but the payout is worth the work.

    Gorgeous tank in that first pic, Pineapple!

    A terr can be as simple as a plastic or glass bowl. As others have said, it all depends on what you want to use it for, functionallity verse decorative, as well as how much time and money you plan to invest in its creation.

    If you REALLY want to short circuit your keyboard with drool -- Google image: "Dutch Vivariums" & "Dutch Vivaria". There are some mind blowingly awesome vivs out there!

    It's not mine though, just a pic from Google Images. But thanks, I did do a good job selecting that photo!
