As Benurmanii mentioned the best way to be successful with these plants is to learn about their natural habitat.
Smooter, and cjpflaumer also offered great advice. Befriending people and asking people who are successful for growing tips is a great idea. Along with following the majority.
As a beginner you need to be somewhat flexible in the way you take care of your plants. Do little experiments your self to see what works best for you. Get two Sarrs, pot one in LFSM pot one in peat, after a couple months you'll know which is a better media for your conditions. Don't try to steer to far off the beaten path as a beginner though. That's why most growers will recommend getting cheap replaceable plants to begin with, and not jumping on the hardest to grow on your wishlist. Baby steps.
