    Plants get hydrogen, oxygen and carbon both from water and the air.

    Water is also an essential nutrient source for plants because it dissolves mineral nutrients in the soil, such as nitrogen, potassium, phosphorus and many others, so that they can be absorbed by the plant’s roots.  The water also carries nutrients up from the roots and throughout the plant.  Water is also important to plants for many other reasons.  Plants use water to cool themselves through transpiration (similar to sweating in humans); they use water in the formation of starches in the process of photosynthesis; and water carries metabolic products to different parts of the plant for use or storage.
