Skill Sequence

It is best to start with Grasping Roots then you root your enemy. But the skill is when you just started your Grasping Roots planting a seed Rampant Growt behind the target. Then the seed will become a vinelasher. So the enemy will be rooted and slowed.
Then you have to use Deadly Bloom and wile deadly bloom is summoning plant a seed in the area. You can close of by using your ult Stranglethorns.

But mostly after the rooting and slowing the enemy wil use flash. and dodging your ult. If you play this very tactic you could summon your Strangethorns just after you rooted the enemy and wile your ult is summonging then use your Deadly Bloom and Rampant Growht instant This wil do your enemy all the damage. If the enemy is then stil alive a few auto attacks and an ignite will finish the job.
