This can potentially be one of the most potent Bullseye plants in the entire game. It has good stats, especially when combined with its ability, and stacks with the abilities of plant environments it is played on. For example, Spikeweed Sector can add 2 damage on top of the damage it normally does, or clear a path to attack your opponent, which makes good use of its Bullseye trait. Pair Pearadise can make another Plantern on that same lane, allowing for more damage overall. When you consider all of the environments in the game, there are many options for boosting Plantern, making it more potent.
Since it is a root plant, it does synergize with Starch-Lord to get more strength and health, making it more of a force to be reckoned with.
If your opponent plays a strong zombie against it, you can play a Team-Up plant to prevent Plantern from being destroyed. If they play a weak zombie to sponge Plantern's attack, you can remove the zombie with tricks like Squash or Berry Blast.
This card can be very dangerous, with its ability combined with environments. The easiest way to destroy this is to use Rocket Science or a similar card. Overriding their environments with your own will not help as it will still activate Plantern's ability, but it does remove the extra benefits given by them. You can also use powerful zombies to destroy it, but tricks are still the best way to deal with it. He has the Bullseye trait, meaning your Super-Block Meter will not fill at all when it attacks you. You can use cards like Terrify, Sumo Wrestler, and Rodeo Gargantuar to move it away from environments, getting rid of its stat boosts.
