what type of lightbulb for an indoor garden?

Question by we must stop the killing: what type of lightbulb for an indoor garden?
i love to cook and i want to grow herbs and maybe like cherry tomatoes and chili peppers indoors. i just need to know do i use a metal halide bulb or a high pressure sodium bulb? i’d mainly be growing like basil, parsley, dill, that kind of thing. i already have the ballast and it can run either bulb. any other advice about indoor gardening like this would be good too. thanks.

150 watt halogen bulb would work nicely for this.
