The correct answer to this question is No. For a flower to properly grow, it needs sunlight, water, and air. The life of a flower starts from a seed. When the seed is planted, it needs to be generously watered. The water, going down to the roots, help give life to the seed.

Along with water, sunlight plays a part in the flower growing because it is converted into energy. The energy is used as a source of food for the flowers. Air is important because flowers need to be at the proper temperature to grow, meaning the air needs not to be too cold or too hot.

Sunlight, water, and air will all work together in order to make flowers grow. There are some flowers that may grow in dark places, but most flowers would need sunlight because this is what they would follow when they bloom. They need air because air will carry the pollen that they need so that they can flower properly.

They need water in order to survive because, just like people, they can become dehydrated too when they do not get enough water in their systems. Plants will be able to survive for a few days to a week without the essential stuff, but after that, your plants may start dying.

No. A flower cannot grow without sunlight, water, and air. Sunlight, water, and air are three basic factors necessary for the growth of any plant; for survival, plants need the three components. Just live other living organisms; plants need food for energy. Photosynthesis is the process in which plants make energy. It is the process by which plants convert light energy to chemical energy (produce a form of sugar and oxygen). Plants cannot survive sunlight for a long time. The plant will begin to die off.

The leaves will get pale and eventually turn yellow with input from sunlight. Plants need carbon dioxide in the process of photosynthesis, as well. The energy in sunlight is used to convert carbon dioxide and water to form sugar and oxygen. In summary, it is impossible for a flower to grow in the absence of sunlight, water, and air as these three components are needed for photosynthesis, which is the energy-generating process that sustains a plant.
