Best Answer

Oxygen is required for cellular respiration in all cells.

During photosynthesis oxygen gas is produced, this is used to produce glucose; oxygen is also then used during anaerobic respiration to break down the glucose to ATP.

Oxygen for normal cellular respiration in other parts of the plant is supplied in solution via the root system.

Yes Plants require oxygen in the same way as any growing living thing does, they use carbon dioxide in the process of photo synthesis during the day as well as some oxygen and they use only oxygen at night.
