Want a grow lamp, live in rental

Hey all,

I've looked online and through the forums a lot and can't find what I'm looking for. I do contract work where I rent and live in apts/condos and change several times a year. I would love a MH or HPS fixture can't because I of that.
All I will be wanting to do is have two different fairly large bananas have light that can allow them to grow more inside even in winter. I'm imagining a lamp that is like six feet tall or with the lamp head that can be moved around. I figure they don't make MH or HPS lights for this type of thing but what about full spectrum fluoroscents?
I'm very "non-handy" when it comes to making things...thats I why I look to buy. Anyway, if anyeone has ideas, It would very appreciated!

you don't need to be handy to run a 400w hps lamp. you just need to be able to fasten 2 ceiling anchors, and hang the thing with some inexpensive chain. look up a local hydroponics store; they love explaining exactly what to do for customers like yourself. tell them you'd like to run a gavita 400w hps lamp, and that you know nothing else.

What about this compact grow light set up here on the link below. Could I just install a couple basic ceiling hooks and hang this thing? Possibly with chains? Thanks.
