I'd say your worst problem would probly be light. It's winter time and the sun isn't out long enough and it wouldn't be as strong by a window as under a proper light.

Anyways, 18 hours of light is better from what i've read. You can use flourescent lights or high intensity discharge lamps, don't bother with incandescent bulbs as they waste too much energy as heat. If its just one plant you'd probably be better off just getting a couple compact flourescent light bulbs, those high effenancy spiral twisty light bulbs, and supplementing the sunlight with those. If you want to put a real investment into it then get a HID system, but then you'd want to grow more then 1 plant at a time to get the most bang for your buck. And don't let the cop read over your shoulder.
