Do you have any natural Sunlight or even bright filtered light from your windows? Even cheap shop lights would work if you need them.

ok i found a 48" t8 shop light at the home depot it will hold 4 bulbs i was thinking of going with 4 daylight bulbs and as for a good sunny window no all my windows have shaded light

That'll work fine. Keep the plant about 8 - 10 inches below the lights.
