Would This Light Work?

Would this 30 inch Fluorescent Aquarium Reflector (20watts) work for a Low Tech Planted Tank?

It will probably work for very low light plants. The bulb is low output coupled with no reflector... Java moss, Java fern, Anubia, Crpyts, maybe Swords...

Expect slow growth but it can work. Look for bulbs in the 3000-7000K range, they will provide the most PAR.
