Plant Food effect
Lightning Reed's Plant Food ability is named Power Surge. Lightning Reed will discharge a large amount of lightning bolts, dealing continuous damage to any zombie that is targeted, as well as any zombies that the lighting chains to.
Lightning Reed's Tacobility is the Forked Lightning, which allows it to fire an additional arc of lightning when it attacks, targeting the second closest zombie in any lane it can attack in.
Lightning Reed works as a fantastic counter to large groups of incredibly weak zombies such as Imps or Zombie Chickens. Due to its ability to target and damage flying zombies, Lightning Reed may prove an effective counter to Zombie Pigeons and Batty Vimpires. Otherwise, Lightning Reed is not very powerful or useful, especially for 6 Sun. So, it is suggested that you only use Lightning Reed for swarms of zombies, Chickens, or weak flying zombies.
