Will Hornwort prolong my fish-in cycle?


I have a 10 gallon that I am doing a fish-in cycle with (unexpectedly inherited some fish.. long story).

Anyways, ammonia levels are about 0.25 and many other users suggested I use TSS for me tank (another long story) to cycle it.

Will my hornwort compete for ammonia with the bacteria from the TSS? Am I prolonging the cycle?
