Im wanting to set up a new low tech low light planted tank, the tank is 50 x 36 x 30cm its got an 18w pc luminaire ive got a few questions I cant find answers to.

Is 18w enough for java ferns, java moss and anubias nana ?

Do I need a substraite as all the plants will be mounted to wood ?

Thanks in advance

I should think it is enough light for those plants. No special substrate needed if you are not going to plant into it.
