Live plants?

I am starting a 2 gallon small tank with a light in the hood (light will be turned off at night)
Is the little 5 watt bulb be enough to keep a plant alive? or will it turn to mush? it won't be near sunlight...

Try posting this question in the plant section of the forum and see if you can get some answers there. :)

you will have to go with a low light applicationsuch as anubias nana or maybe a small java fern, but even then 5w might not be enough. its worth a try at least. even if it doesnt work out, youre looking at a $2 loss on the plant

if its not enough then try putting a lamp next to the tank, a relative of mine did this for a while when his bulb broke and his plants are huge! and youd have the tank light aswell so i rekon thhats ur best option.
