I got one of those 15w "grow" flourescents from Lowe's for like 10 bucks with a timer in it, works great!

A normal light bulb will work ok but is the wrong colour temp.

A compact fluorescent (energy saving bulb) in the 6500k range is much better. And will last years.

I just got one of those cfl bulbs that ionise the air, incredibly bright and in the 6500K range (gives of a cold light) plus it supposedly cleans the air (wel will see)

for both of my fruiting chambers i use General Electric daylight 24" 6500k 20watt they have been working great for everything so far, there like 6 and some change at like lowes or home depot, and those bulbs i just got a under cabinet lighting and i think those only cost me like 12, have them set on a 12/12 time schedule also I have them sitting right above my FC the area is so cold doesnt even cough up any type of heat that would change the temp in the FC at all
