Best Answer

Saprophytes are plants that live on dead or decaying matter. They obtain nutriment osmotically by absorbing the products of organic breakdown. Therefore, saprophytes are likely to be found around fallen logs in woods or forests, or on heaps of plant material left to rot at the bottom of your garden.
