New to planted tanks- Nano Lighting Question

Hello, I am attempting to run a 2 gallon Fluval spec as a planted tank. I am not sure that the LED light that came with it is powerful enough to grow some of the more light demanding plants, like dwarf baby tears. Is there a recommended lighting upgrade for plants for this specific, small aquarium? A few months ago I broke down my 8 year old SPS reef tank, so lighting terminology is familiar to me. Any help that you can provide is appreciated and thanks! Happy New Year.
