I don't have time to do a Mid's build. But I've been leveling my own Plant/Nature currently at 44th, and going strong. 

 

Plant generally plays at a distance with it's powers. Nature does have many powers that also work well at range (cone heal, spore cloud, etc) but its buffs are point blank, meaning the front line guys need you to come forward to get them. Also your toggle hold aura also may require you to get into the thick of things.

 

Thus Nature may require you to skirmish a bit in the battlefield. That's not a bad thing, it does help keep me engaged. But it does add a bit of risk, especially at lower levels when your own personal defenses are meager.

 

Thematically they are pleasing together. You bring lots of healing, some good debuffs, solid buffs (absorb and overgrowth in particular). Control is also good, decent AoE damage, a strong pet when solo (slot for -res and negative energy procs), and the nice openers of either seeds of confusion or carrion creepers.

 

The pairing is strong, if not particularly synergistic, but you will never lack for some way to contribute on teams. 

 

Solo is decent. I just finished Mako's patron arc on +2/x3. Calistyx the Shaper gave me a bit more trouble than Mako, because Mako as an EB was easily neutered by immobilized. Not sure I'd try that arc yet with AVs as my ranged defense is still a bit low (21) and my single damage is not where I'd want it yet without more IO investment.

 

Recharge is your friend. You want Creepers, Vines, and your three Nature buffs up often. So grab Hasten in your teens or twenties. 

 

I do recommend Entangling Aura. It's very helpful at locking down mobs and stacking hold magnitude.

I have been loving mine, even before hitting 50 and IO's was fun, with IO's she is even better. 

 

I found someone else's build and made a few tweaks, this is what I ended up with, would love for the more experienced to critique it.

My build is similar to this and I love it, just trying to decide on interface incarnate, any recommendations?

I just got my Alpha on mine, but I'm either going Degenerative (for the -Hit Points to help with tougher targets, plus some toxic extra damage) or Spectral (for negative damage and some more immobilization overkill, ha ha!). Likely Degenerative, though everyone has it, so in large groups its not likely to stack much. But it makes the most sense for what the build needs (help with tough targets). Plus with all the pets (Creepers, Fly Trap, Water Spout) it should proc fairly often.
