Plant Lighting

I'm just starting back into aquariums. I have one planted tank with a Finnex Planted+ fixture and use Seachem Fundamentals and Root Tabs. The plants are flourishing (of course) !

Now I have a 5.5 gal for new fish before I introduce them to the larger tank. It came with a very low light but I want to have nice plants in there also (have plenty to move without buying any).

Does anyone have a suggestion for an economical plant light?

2 x 13w cool white CFL bulbs. Cheapest and easiest way to light a 5.5 gal.
