That is the same tube that I had. Java Moss will be fine. Floating Water Sprite probably but this will mean nothing below except the moss will last. Wisteria wil not do well without brighter light.
The sad thing about these basic fixtures is that they are intended for someone with no plants, and a tank of colourful fish. The light brings out red and blues. I had to replace two of my old dual-tujbe 4-foot fixtures a couple years ago, and I got the All Glass, which are well made, but the tubes were much the same and they went into the recylcing as soon as I got them home.
I don't know what Walmart carries, if you can get brands like the Hagen (Life-Glo), ZooMed or maybe Coralife there, you might be OK. There is a good Coralife tube but I can't remember the details, they make so many, and some are useless for planted tanks, others only work for marine.
