Several questions about starting indoors

Question from a starting grower:

Our bedroom is the whole 3rd floor of our house. It is very private, as well as spacious. Would the plants prosper in the middle of the room? The temperature is sometimes a little cool ( 64-65 degrees Fahrenheit.) Will I need to keep it warmer and would infrared heaters work? I also would like to ask if you like LED grow lights and if so what would you recommend. I am obviously brand new to this so I would like to keep the price between $100 - $150 USD. And finally, could I use
5 gallon buckets right from the start and how would it be only one plant per or could I plant two. I intend to try probably 3 to start.

Sorry to tell you this but you’re going to spend more than $150. Getting started or did you mean just for the light?
One plant per 5 gal bucket.
