Answers:Parasitic plants get their nutrition by taking it from a living host. The host is harmed (a little or a lot), and the parasite benefits. Dodder and mistletoe are parasitic plants. An epiphytic plant just lives stuck onto another plant, usually up on a tree. The epiphyte doesn't take anything from the plant that it's living on. This is a commensal relationship. The epiphyte benefits by getting to live up higher in better light, and the host is neither helped nor harmed. Examples include the bromeliads. A saprophytic plant uses enzymes to break down dead organic matter and then absorbs nutrition from it. The Indian pipe is a saprophytic plant. It is not photosynthetic, so it has to get food somehow! Not too many plants are like that.
