Plants get hydrogen and oxygen from water in the soil, and carbon and oxygen from carbon dioxide and oxygen in the atmosphere. Water and carbon dioxide are used to synthesise food during photosynthesis. Oxygen is used to release energy from food during respiration.

Two important mineral ions needed by plants are: nitrate - for making amino acids, which are needed to make proteins and magnesium - for making chlorophyll
