I agree, it's best to do regular maintenance on your filters, plants or not.
The plants may help absorb some of the things from the water, but the filter still needs to get rid of the solids that are bound to pass through a tank. With plants it's especially important to keep an eye on the intake strainer since it picks up all of the little break-away plant parts and can get clogged very quickly.
If you get in a normal routine, it's not too much effort at all. :)
