Default Desk lamp?

Hi everybody, I recently purchased a MarineLand 5g tank (which comes with LED lights, which research told me has 16 x .1 watt bulbs). Although I use aquarium gravel substrate, I prefer the look of a heavy-planted tank, so I know I need a high-light aquarium.

I began to shine my desk lamp, which has a 30W bulb (a spiral shaped, screw-in bulb). The light is a strong white color (which, based off my reading online, seems to be a higher temperature color, >8000). So my question is, do you think this bulb provides sufficient light at the spectrum for high-light plants?
