The biggest amount of bacteria is found in/on the substrate correct? Along with being on the decor.
So since the OP does have plants though not knowing for sure how many? My thinking was to have them float some substrate along with keeping any decor wet and placing back in the tank to help the tank not to go through a cycle.
In heavily plant tanks with such plants as stems, fast growers and floaters. I can see where the floating of the old substrate isn't needed but in tanks with a few plants I can see where it would be beneficial.

This is correct. The "unknown variables" are the number of fish, number of plants, amount of "decor."
