Is it Possible...?

I'm going to get a filter for my five gal today, along with *hopefully* a few decorations for it. My problem is, even if I get plants today, they'll be sitting in a little QT tank for a week or so. Is it possible to add plants to a cycling tank without taking everything out and breaking the cyle? I know with plants like java ferns and anubias I can just tie them to their rock and they'll sink, but what about buried plants?

Live plants actually HELP with the cycle.

Stem plants are simple. Find a permanent place for them, bury them there, don't touch.

You don't have to move everything around and take anything out, you just add in the plants.

Okay, thanks. I just didn't want to "rock the boat" with messing things up in the tank, but I don't think that'll be a problem.
