Uncycled 10 gallon tank?

I've changed form a 3.5 gallon betta tank to a 10 gallon tank that is not cycled should I be worried or will it cycle naturally? also I have a bamboo plant in there it is NOT fully submerged the leaves are out and the tank is covered so the betta won't jump.I also have a java fern and a marimo moss ball in there.

This is late, but hopefully helpful.

If you don't do 100% changes, the tank will cycle naturally. You can do a fish in cycle where you basically do two 40-50% WC's weekly for the first 1.5 months, then throttle back to 25%. You need a filter of course and I'm assuming you already have a heater?

though you'd do better to keep your fish in the 3.5G, while doing a fishless cycle of tye 10G....
