Yeah that should be sufficient if they are in a row but may I suggest....
Sunblaster 904296 NanoTech T5 High Output Fixture Reflector Combo, 2-Feet https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AKKUBDQ/re ... YybYYTBDY4
The reflector will make a big difference. It's essentially the same light as you posted, plus the reflector.

But this would work for a while? Atleast until i can get it rigged up. Maybe ill see about taking the casing off and making a reflector.. from foil or something

You can make a really cheap reflector out of chicken wire wrapped in foil. Foil isn't as reflective as flat white surfaces though, especially once it's wrinkled.

I was also going to suggest making a reflector. 2000 L is enough as long as most of it his hitting your plants.

I aim for at least 2000 lumens per square foot of grow space for high light plants like sundews. I would not use a light without a reflector.

I ended up getting two of these. Would this work?
