Can I use a desktop sunlight lamp to grow a small indoor garden?

Question by Venus: Can I use a desktop sunlight lamp to grow a small indoor garden?
I have a desktop sun light lamp, a lamp that simuates natural light. It says 27 W on the bulb. Can I use this as a growlight to grow herbs?

If this is not suitable, can anyone suggest a low-heat alternative? I don’t want my seeds to suffer because of ineadequate lighting, but I’ve heard that these lamps are good enough for growing.

Thanks!
