    Well, they don't have lungs of course. But through Photosynthesis, plants take in Sunlight and Carbon Dioxide and spit out Oxygen for us to breathe. Plants are also green because of the Chlorophyll present in all plants and it helps the plant with the Photosynthesis by absorbing energy from light. Hope this helped.

    Plants don t breath like humans.....but they do respire. They take in oxygen (at night). During the day they create food through photosynthesis by taking in carbon dioxide, water and sunlight. From this process, oxygen and glucose are produced as waste products. As fore mentioned plants.....in my opinion plants do not breath but they require oxygen to carry out reactions( splitting bonds of sugar) and they require carbon dioxide to produce food

    Like with lungs? No.

    But plants have microscopic holes on the bottom side of the leaves are designed to take on carbon dioxide and release oxygen.
