Welcome to the boards.

Start with the stickies, located at the top of each subforum. This one in particular:

http://www.arachnoboards.com/ab/showthread.php?t=5292

Then learn how to operate the search function on this site - it will lead you to all the information you could ever ask for, and more. There's a link in my signature to a nifty tutorial on how to use it, created by yours truly.

First, "Welcome to the hobby!"

And, "Welcome to this forum!"

May I first suggest you read http://people.ucalgary.ca/~schultz/stansrant.html?

Be sure to read all four books recommended in Stan's Rant. I recommend that you read them in the order they are listed. You need not read them all at once, but within the next few months (say by Christmas or New Years) you should. You can get most at your local, neighborhood, public library (use the Interlibrary Loan System if you need to). Or, you can find a lot of them at local pet shops. Or, you can order them through local book stores. Or, you can order them over the Internet from the 'Net based book sellers. Or, you can order many from the publishers themselves. Lots of options!

By reading these books you'll gain a good, solid foundation to your knowledge about tarantulas and their care. You'll learn what is already known about them. And, you'll be able to ask better focused questions, and be able to interpret the answers better.

Enjoy your newfound little buddy!

Rose hairs are easy. Peat moss is a good substrate. Keep it dry. They're fine at room temperature. Have a water dish in there full of clean water.
No misting!

Feed it 2-3 crickets a week, give or take.

You dont need any special heating or humidity things.

This is an adult im assuming right?

Welcome to the hobby! Rose hairs aren't difficult to keep. like the others say, dry substrate and a water dish. Also, don't be surprised if you end up with several more tarantulas before you're through. {D
