you need about 2-3wpg to grow plants at medium-high light, and at least 1wpg to grow low light plants, so you dont have enough light yet, you need to get at least 55w or 100-150 would grow plants better, i have found that the expensive lights and the cheap lights from home hardware work as well as long as you get cool ones not the warm ones.
