Is this light strong enough for plants

I don't know how strong the light is, if I got 2 of them (for another 5 gallon tank i'm setting up), would it be strong enough to help hornwort live well?

Does anyone know of any good led lights for plants, or have advise on good light strips? I've been looking around, and I've only found this one:

I'm looking for one that's 18-18 and 1/5 inches long...if that's possible!
If not, anyone know how I can hang a light strip over the aquarium?
Any help would be great. :)

Hmmm, Not sure. It all depends on the size of your tank, the type of plants you will have, the intensity of the bulb, and the k rating of the bulb. I just use a desk lamp with a 26 watt 6500k CFL bulb. Check my sig if you havent seen it.

Im thinking #2 will be good for a low light 10 gallon tank or smaller.

Thanks!!
I didn't think of it before, but I'll just get a clip on lamp and then use a fluorescent bulb. Where I put the aquarium it would work well because I can hang it above on the metal things on the wall.....lol. That wasn't a good description.
