I add my plants when I set up the tank. If you delay, you add time to the cycling of the tank. I have found that my nitrates, nitrites, and ammonia levels come in line quicker than with a tank with normal filtration and gravel. The plants uses the nitrates as a fertilizer. Some plants, such as anachris, absorb nutrients through their leaves and also soften the water.
