Hi, I have been researching different lights for low light, easy plants, in my ( almost cycled) 5 gallon tank. I currently have a architect lamp with a CFL daylight bulb. 40w(uses 9w)450 lumens/5000K. I just placed 2 Anubias, 3 moss balls and a piece of Water Wisteria ( this one from my 20 gallon tank) into the tank. Will this bulb work ( as the lamp states I can only use a max of 10 watts). If it does work, I was thinking about purchasing another lamp like it and have two bulbs going. Any help would be greatly appreciated .

That light would be fine for all those. Adding another would not hurt but isn't entirely necessary.

I have the same exact plants you do and they are low light plants. They'll do fine in that light setting so it's not necessary to get another one. You can get another one if you'd like though
