go to wal-mart and pick up a cool white 42W compact spiral florou. or go to lights and Bro grunt has a light set-up to show you a great veg set-up for one plant. I would get at least two florous by it with a dual socket adapter. ;)

I hate to burst your bubble but....
10.5" x 3.5" isn't big enough to grow pot.
You didn't reveal how tall the box is but it doesn't matter really.
I'm assuming you've never seen a marijuana plant in real life before, at least not one in flowering. They need more space.
And besides, if you only have 1 plant, you may end up having spent 4 months to grow a male.

You need a bigger space like a closet or wardrobe, and you need to grow at least 3 plants so you're more likely to get a female.

P.S. to grow good pot you need 6,000 lumens per sq/ft.
And only 3 kinds of light grow pot:
Fluorescent (poor but will give you a small yield)
Metal Halide (MH, good for veg not so good for flowering)
High Pressure Sodium (the king of lights for indoor growing).

P.P.S. conversion chart:
flo's emit 75 lumens per watt
MH emit 110 lumens per watt
HPS emit 125 lumens per watt

Guru right, that space would have to be nearly 3 times that size for a moderate sized plant in full flower. i have done a lot of flouro grows with great success in limited(but not that limited) space and money, so a if budget limit is an issue, I'm a good guy to talk to. Although I highly suggest you try to work in an HID, you can grow a good size head stash of bud with flouros and still have plenty to share with friends. The first thing I would suggest is to throw away whatever you were going to grow in and look around your place a little better. Than I'd read this link http://www.marijuanapassion.com/forumWOW/Full-Marijuana-Growing-Guide.html , which is a basic grow guide. Read itr all the way through because you need to know everything in it to grow your plants right. (BTW the only reason anyone should ever grow just one plant is if it's a clone, so that you already know its sex.)
