By consensus, the term "cycle," as used here, refers to the nitrogen cycle, the use of bacteria to oxidize nitrogen compounds thus removing them from the environment.
Whatever you may chose to call the use of plants to remove ammonia et.al (silent cycle, whatever) it is NOT the nitrogen cycle which is the topic of this thread.
