Plants in or plants out?

I'm going to start the cycle process of my tank today. ( I finally found the ammonia I needed! wooo!)

I was wondering if I should put the live plants in there before I start the cycle or put them in after it is complete?

I've heard plants suck up some ammonia so I don't know what that would do to my cycle process, speed it up, slow it down, or prevent it.

Thanks for any help! :)

There is no need to add ammonia if you have plants

Aquatic plants directly absorb Ammonia, so there is no need to cycle if you have live plants. Just put in the plants and then put your fish in! Easy!
