Dry start method with ADA substrate system?

Hey everyone,

I am building up a 30G mountain scene with a full ADA substrate system.
I want to do a DSM on it to attach moss and grow cuba and hair grass. I am worried about the amounts of ammonia being leached from the aquasoil. They say to cycle the tank without plants in the tank for 3-4 weeks as the high amount of ammonia.
Should i be worried about this with the DSM?

No, just plant it and go. You'll be fine.
