Can plants take water out of the air?

    Good question, Kyleeray.  Plants use photosynthesis, which takes carbon dioxide out of the air, and water out of the soil to produce sugar that the plant uses as energy, and oxygen which it expires back into the air.  So in this sense, no, plants don’t take water out of the air.

    It is possible, however, for dew to condense on a plants leaves, thereby running down to the ground and watering its own roots.  I’m not sure if I would necessarily say that the plant is “taking” the water, though, but it certainly helps them collect water.

    Hope this helps!
