The plant makes carbon dioxide and water in nature into glucose and oxygen. It can be described as follow equation CO2+H2O==(CH2O)n+O2  The plants make their own food through photosynthesis. Plants use light energy to make sugars from carbon dioxide (C02) and water (H20).

Plants have "factories" to manufacture their food, and these factories are the leaves.
Leaves of fruit trees manufacture the food which helps to make fruit. Both peaches and maple sugar, for example, are sweet. So peach and maple leaves must be able to make sugar. They do this by taking materials from the air and the ground.

One of these materials is carbon dioxide, a gas which is taken from the air. The other material is water, which comes from the soil. From the water and carbon dioxide the leaves manufacture sugar. This process of making food is called "photosynthesis".Many kinds of plants seem to have no sugar in them because the sugar is soon changed to other kinds of food, such as starch and protein.

The food "factory" needs machines, and the machines of the leaf are many little green bodies called "chloroplasts". They are green because they have in them a green matter called "chlorophyll". The power that runs the machines is sunshine.The roots of the plant take water from the soil. The water goes through the roots, through the stems and branches, and then into the veins of the leaves. The veins carry water to the cells. This is where the chloroplasts are.

Veins also carry the food which the leaves have made and not used to storage places such as roots, fruits and seeds.Leaves must also get rid of waste materials. The air that goes into a leaf has carbon dioxide in it. When the sun is shining, the leaves use the carbon dioxide to make sugar. The rest of the air, with additional oxygen, is given off through the stomata, which are openings between cells on the underside of the leaf.

Ferns are nocturnal hunters and savage vegetarians but they will not eat thier own kind. Ferns feed every night around 9:30 or 10:00, if you go into the forest around this time you will no doubt see a lot of ferns scurrying about on thier bare roots viciously devouring other plant life; if you are very quiet you can hear the screams, the terrible terrible screaming. I will never forget the first time I saw a baby cherry tree dismembered and consumed by a monster black fern, the image of the the cherry blossoms scattered about and the gnarled bark remains are forever seared into my memory.

Plant make their own food out of inorgonic compounds through a prcess called photosthesis,that take place in the leaves.

and water (H20).

The two other most important function of plants are Respiration and Transpiration.

Respiration is the process in which plants burn (metabolizing) sugar to yield energy for growth.

Through stomata of leaves, the loss of water vapour is called Transpiration.
