Nitrites and plants?

Hey everybody, just wondering, I want to go out and get some live plants tonight. Not sure what kind. More than likely whatever is cheapest and in the moderate lighting area. But I want to put these in my cycling 28 gallon. I'll go do another test... Awesome, it appears the water change I did yesterday helped greatly. Ammonia 0ppm,Nitrite levels are .25ppm. Nitrates 20ppm. I don't know much about plants, just that they need light. What says ye? Should I go ahead and put whatever plant I get in there, and it probably won't effect it greatly. Or wait till the cycle is finished?

Just so you know amazon swords can quickly get out of control huge. I have a couple in my 29 gallon and even with a lot of trimming they are still almost too big
