What is meant by saprophytic plant?

saprophyte or saprotroph is an organism which gets its energy from dead and decaying organic matter. This may be decaying pieces of plants or animals. This means that saprophytes are heterotrophs. They are consumers in the food chain.Saprophytic bacteria are fungal organisms that feed off of decaying organic matter.I hope this solved the question
