We're definitely talking potential brown rotting mush with less than 1wpg. I've managed to grow Anubias and Crypt wendtii in 1wpg, but it was very small, and grew so slowly that the old leaves eventually became covered in algae since they weren't being replaced by new growth fast enough. We're talking one new leaf a month here.
Just pick the bulb color based on preference. If you can't find them in home improvment stores or lighting supply stores, the LFS's have them (they're just three times as expensive).
