A plant is a living organism that typically has features such as leaves, roots and stems. They are normally autotrophs meaning they make their own food and do this by absorbing light through their leaves and undergoing a process called photosynthesis.

Photosynthesis

This is a process by which carbon dioxide and water under the presence of light is converted to sugars and oxygen. The plant can then use the sugars and oxygen for respiration and also expire some of the oxygen which is then used by other living organisms to respire[1].
