I want to pot my plants and use organic potting soil capped with gravel. Would that work?

My biggest concern is would this cause a significant ammonia spike? I was thinking maybe 4 or 5 pots in my 29g about this size.

If it would how do I deal with it? Extra water changes? Extra filtration?
Thank you very much!

I would do a scientific test. Get a 5 gallon bucket, fill it with water, and put a pot with dirt inside of the bucket. Test the water quality daily.
