You can but really it comes down to the plants you want to grow and the kelvin rating of your light. Look for a broad spectrum 6500k or higher light. Anything lower is only good for anubias and some java ferns.

Depends on the spectrum. As CindiL said, you want something that is about 6500K (it will say it somewhere on the box or description of the product). Just any bulb even if it has high wattage, may not have the right spectrum. Plants can only absorb certain colors/wavelengths a light that is 3000K or 8000K will not grow plants.
