How is this for starting seeds?

Hello all, I am starting broccoli and peas under this setup: 20 watt wide spectrum about 12" above the tops of the sprouts. How does that sound?

That isn't much wattage. I'd move the lights down to 3" or so above the sprouts.

Are you sprouting to eat sprouts, or to plant in a garden?
