Cycling tank without seeding it?

I was wondering if this is possible?

Definitely. Seeding just helps jump start things. You can go the fishless cycle route (recommended) or fish-in cycle. There are some great articles on here on both topics.

Well the filter will only have the beneficial bacteria in it still if the media was kept wet. Have you added any ammonia yet?
