I didn't have an ammonia spike with my organic soil, but I also used my already cycled water and filter media from my old setup. I did go with a bunch of hornwort at first, which is cheap or free from the LFS. As I populated my tank with other plants, I took some of the hornwort out until I no longer needed it.

If you do go with dirt, make sure you use some method to de-gas it before moving forward with the rest of the build or you will have bubbles galore for a couple of months.
