Helen will explain how parasitic plants get the water, food and oxygen they (and all living things) need to survive. Most plants rely on photosynthesis for manufacturing sugars which are the building blocks, with certain minerals, for the other molecules that they require. Some plants “cheat” to a greater or lesser degree with varying effects on the host.
