Early Game. Your priority is dual lane. But if no one is not strong enough to take solo mid, you can handle it too. If you take dual lane, babysit your partner by healing him/ her using Leech Seed. You can dominate the lane even if you always been harassed. It's possible because you have healing skill and high health, so, don't resist no matter what. You don't need to back to fountain just for replenishing your depleted mana. You're absolutely not a spell spammer. Just stay in your lane, last hit and deny as much as you can. Jungling is not recommended, but if you must to do that, take the right item and spam your Leech Seed to neutral creeps for both healing you and killing creeps.
When you reach level 6, you can try to gank with your friend. The combo is simple. Approach your target, cast Leech Seed then let your carry handle the rest. If the victim want to run away, cast Overgrowth or if the situation turn upside down, cast Leech Seed again to heal your friend or cast Nature's Guise to escape.

Mid Game. In this phase of the game your jobs are gank, support, and push. When you are with your team's carry, do support, so he/ she can finish the job. If there's no hardcore carry or there's only one carry in your team, you can be a carrier by getting the DPS or chaser items. You are also viable to be a tanker, but first make sure that your team doesn't have battle initiator. Your core items should be done at this point. If everything go smooth you should even have one luxury at the end of mid game.

Late Game. Entering this phase require you to focus on what kind of role you choose on the previous phase. If you took a tanker build, you should get the tanker luxuries (e.g. Tarrasque and satanic). Not only because you already had the ingredients, but also to maximizing your role in the team. Even though you are already had a specific role, you are still capable of supporting your friends. Nature's Guise for hid your team mate, Leech Seed can heal and slow, Living Armor has positive aura, and Overgrowth has the capability to disable your desperate friend's chaser. So, make use of your skills anytime they needed and win the game.
