A 65 watt 10,000k/actinic only gives you 32.5 watts of light when calculating the number of watts. The actininc does not contribute to the total watts. It is useful for plants but only if you have high enough wattage. This puts you at low light. Wisteria, and moneywort may grow a little but need more light and the micro swords needs a lot more light. It is a high light plant.
The best thing to do would be to switch out the bulb with a 100% 10,000K bulb if you can. This will help a lot. And try to find Seachem's nitrogen, pottasium, and trace (iron). If oyu really want to get inexpensive ferts for the long run click HERE
and we will help you decide what to get to best be ready for the higher needs of the plants.
