Plant Surge, also known as Consitor Sato, was a light side Force power that was based around the channeling of life energy into plants, allowing the user to improve the plant's rate of growth and even affect the manner in which it grows. In battle, the ability to control a plant's growth could be used to cause plants to grow with incredible speed directly under the user's control, causing plant life to grow and twist around opponents, ensnaring anyone who wasn't quick enough to avoid it. Once ensnared, the victim would find it difficult to dodge and fight, and nearly impossible to move unless they escaped through force or finesse.
The Jedi Master known as the Dark Woman used this power on Cophrigin V to restrain Darth Vader while dueling in order to strike him down. Vader proved too difficult to contain, however, and cut himself free in order to kill her.
Fellow Master Shaak Ti used this technique in conjunction with the Animal friendship skill against Galen Marek during their duel on Felucia, commanding the local Sarlacc to lash out at the Sith apprentice with its feeding tentacles. Marek ignored or knocked away most attempts at attack in this method.
Abeloth, Bringer of Chaos, could control the plants on her home planet, using them to her advantage against those who would enter her domain. Whether Abeloth could utilize this technique while off-world is unknown.
