Plants could and should go in asap. They will help with the cycling and actually feed off of the ammonia, nitrite, and nitrates. For shrimp, you'll want a reading of zero for ammonia and nitrite. Once you reach that point, you'll have to do water changes to bring your nitrates below 30. I assume you are aware that you need to be adding ammonia in some form for the cycle to even begin.
