salvia divinorum, it can be acclimated to all kinds of lights (strong or just shades), and it's easy to grow once you get the hand at it.

If I had a grow-light, I'd be growing some cactii, some salvia, maybe even a tobacco plant.

Indoor rooms are great for everything... All of your wildest dreams can come true. lol. But really, they're great, especially for starting just about ANYTHING off... It's like a greenhouse but better... More efficient, more consistent light AND spectrum, controllable wind, temperature, bug control (I hang those "No Pest" strips in mine... works like an F-ing charm) humidity (with a humidifier of course) etc ETC.... They're wonderful man... You will never regret it. My original veg room has been running non-stop now for almost two years, and hardly growing weed at all...

Growing cacti under HPS/MH lightning is very easy if you have the space and money, they love it.

it depends, but my answer to any question about HPS wattage is always 600w.

Salvia...and an assortment of herbs...

Salvia grows just fine indoors without any additional lights.

My buddy grows two decent sized trichs under a 150w HPS but I'm sure a bit higher would be better.

If you're going to go the cacti route, I'd recommend starting them from seed under lights and eventually having them outdoors where the best light is for them instead of risking stretching.

There's a whole lot of specialty plants that are interesting to grow indoors.  Psychoactive plants, carnivorous plants, bromeliads (including Tillandsia), orchids, arums, succulents, cacti, bonsai, dwarf fruit trees, bananas, even water lilies/lotuses.  You don't have to stick to one particular type of plant type or anything, as long as you think the environment that the rest of your plants are in will also be accommodating to new plants you get or that you can make an area of your grow space suit their needs.  It's nice to read up about each plant as you get it so you will know how much work you can expect to put into each plant ahead of time and how it might grow.  Carnivorous plants, for example, need soil without nutrients, a good amount of light, highish humidity, and distilled or rain water, which is very important to know before you start to cultivate them.

I'll second this approach. Cacti from seed can be very rewarding, plus you can acquire genetically 'new' specimens which are always a bag of cards. Cacti seedlings can be grown cheaply and with rather minimal effort, not to mention the chance you can get a rare (and valuable) mutant.

There are also several excellent writeups around for maintaining tropical carnivorous plants in an aquarium, something I yearn to do sometime for the aesthetic appearance.

I also strongly second this. 600w is certainly the best for the size, value, electrical usage (lumens per watt efficiency), and heat generated.

Lets say an average 600W light puts out around 90k Lumens and that a 1000W light puts out 140,000 (Numbers came from the net, but should be generally accurate).

Given these numbers, the 600W gives you 150 Lumens per watt whereas the 1000W gives you 140 per watt. Somewhat miniscule difference, but once factoring in heat, replacement bulbs, ballast + reflector cost, IMO 600W > 1000W both cost and efficiency by watts.
