Winter growing a Dwarf Cavendish

The weather is becoming much colder with less sunlight. I brought my Dwarf Cavendish inside. I need to know what type of inside lighting would be needed for this plant? Or any other suggestions you might have.

Any kind of inside lighting will do fine. In my experience, grow lights do not make that much of a difference.

I would suggest the T5HO Fluorescent lamp and fixture. They produce the same light intensity per watt as a metal halide lamp, and their light output does not diminish until they are close to 95-98% of their lifetime. Metal halide lamps taper off after 15-20% of their lifetime.
