Lime Tree Lights problem

I just received a Key Lime Tree about 2 1/2 feet tall as a present. I live in an apartment with windows that will only allow about 4 hours top of direct sun light each day and don't have anywhere to place it outside in the summertime. Clearly artifical lighting is the only option I have right now. My question is where do I go from here, in terms of proper lights?

On a side note I can't hang anything from my ceiling and don't have the room for an elaberate setup.

Here are some pictures of my tree and the space that it's in.

Nice tree. You could make a stand to hang lights from so you dont have to make holes in the cieling. Then for the lighting you should use a hps or mh to see real results.
