Aussie Clea Cregan and her lovely "miniscapes" were featured in the Sydney Morning Herald last week.  She cites using books from the 70s to train herself in her terrarium-making-skills.  I highly recommend keeping an eye out for terrarium books from the 70s as well - they can be a wealth of resources.  Here are her tips for good terrarium plants:

Moisture-loving, low-growing plants are ideal for terrariums: African violets, baby's tears, silver net plants, ferns, begonias and succulents. Creeping fig is another good choice Cregan has used many times to create a lush, dense jungle.
