Do plants get water from their leafs?

    no. plants absorb water through their roots and are taken to the leaves through the xylem of the plant stem and is then used in the chlorophyll of the leaves along with sunlight and carbon dioxide to make glucose for the plant to eat and oxygen as a byproduct.

    Usually no, water actually evaporates from the leaves after being absorbed by the roots and transported up the stem, a process called transpiration. 

    However certain plants in regions like the Atacama Desert of South America absorb a tiny by vital amount of water from fog through their leaves and stems. The Atacama Desert is one of the driest places on earth, with an average of .04 inches of rainfall per year.
