Be sure to add some KH or you'll never cycle

What in the world?
That's an odd statement.
Anyway regarding aquasoil, it has more ammonia than you'll need, frequent water changes can help speed things up.
Ammonia over 3 or some say over 5 kills nitrifying bacteria so make sure you do enough water changes to keep it below that.
I aim for about 1.5 usually.
Another benefit of the water changes is the bacteria prefer a higher pH and aquasoil will drive it very low at first.
If you have a heater set it to low 80s for another speed boost.
Put as many plants as you can in the tank right away, they'll grow like crazy.
I only test ammonia weekly, as I know my 3-4x a week water changes will keep the ammonia levels down, but about 8-10 days in I start testing for nitrite.
If I'm seeing nitrite levels it's almost over, just keep testing every so often until you see that 0 nitrite reading and your done.
(If nitrite is zero your ammonia will definitely be zero as well.
