    Tarek,

    The problem iis this is a subject that does not have many simple answers. If you only have a few plants go with CFL of about 6500k and you should do fine.

    I would not recommend Metal Halide for someone with no experience.

    Hope this helps,

    Tarek,

    Heat may become a concern, like I said no simple answers.

    Start off small with just a few plants and lights.

    Get some experience and build your collection and increase your lights as you do.
