If you have growing plants in an aquarium, and a light load of fish, it isn't necessary to do anything to cycle the tank. Cycling is a natural process that occurs whenever there is any ammonia in the tank water, as there would be with a light fish load. The growing plants will consume most of the ammonia as a source of nitrogen anyway, so no surge of ammonia in the water will occur. Now, when you add a few more fish, the increase in ammonia from those added fish will cause further growth of the ammonia to nitrate bacteria, and, again, the plants will consume most of the ammonia anyway. Once you build up the fish population to the final load, the tank will have the bacteria population needed to handle that ammonia load, and the plants will continue to use up much of that ammonia as plant food.
But, if you don't use growing plants, or if you plan to dump in a heavy fish load all over a short time span, then cycling the tank is essential. Since this is a "planted tank" forum, this is going to be a rare occurrence for those reading here.
