Yes, but you have to be aware some plants will require more kelvins of light.
Hygorphila polysperma and difformis are good choices as they are fast growing plants.

Each 10W compact fluorescent bulb shines as bright as a 50W incandescent for an easy way to upgrade lighting conditions. Helps promote plant growth in small aquariums)drfostersmith
