amazon compacta and micro sword requirements?

Hey everyone Im new to planting in aquarium I recently added laterite to the soil without making to much of a mess and then I added 2 micro swords and a amazon compacta. Question is that I have 2 15 watt 8000k lights over a 29 gallon which makes it roughly over 1 watt per gallon do my new plant stand a chance to survive?

i have about 1.8w per gallon using t5ho and my micro swords are doing fine. Ive had them for about a month and they have doubled in height and put out about 3 runners each.

In my situation I have about a 15 and a 17 equaling 32 in a 29.
So that would closer to 1.1 wpg. Is that ok?
