I'd shoot for a 6500-6700k bulb, and possibly with a slightly lower spectrum combined will be visually pleasing and provide fairly well for plant growth.

Dirt/soil combined with a proper cap(to preference, I.e. pea gravel or black sand)

Plant heavily from the beginning, I'm not familiar with the entirety setup of the biocube but you might want to use floaters to thin the light down below.
