Plants alone will not cycle a tank any time soon. They can help in shortening cycle time if you are adding a ammonia source. If you are not adding an ammonia source or have fish in the tank to add it, plants will sit their until you get the odd few leaves to die and the rotting leaf will add some ammonia, but not enough to keep the cycle running.
