You can try it, but if the cherries are anything like my 11 rosy barbs, your female betta will NOT be happy. It also depends on the tank setup. I have quite a few plants in my 30 G, but my VT female was only in there for 2-3 minutes before I had to rescue her. I fed the fish GENEROUSLY right before, but after they finished the food, they started to follow the VT.
You can try it, but make sure you have a net handy & at least 30 minutes to observe their interaction.
