With a low bioload, and lots of fast growing plants, it doesn't need to
cycle.  The plants will directly consume any ammonia and/or nitrites.

I never cycled my big 75g tank.  I just set up the tank, adding lots of
plants, and let them go for a month.  Then I started adding fish.  
Never saw any type of ammonia or nitrite or nitrate.
