how do non green plants prepare their food????

Leaves of plants are green in colour due to the presence of pigment chlorophyll. This pigment is responsible for carrying out photosynthesis in plants. In some plants, leaves are orange or yellow in colour it doesn't mean that they do not contain chlorophyll. It shows that such leaves contain other pigments in higher amount than chlorophyll. But such plants are capable of carrying out photosynthesis.

Some other plants that are non green can follow parasitic mode of nutrition.

non-green or non-sun plants can get their food/energy (ATP) from:

1. glycolosis

2.bridging pathway (puyruvate to CoA

3.Krebs cycle (or CAC/citric cycle)

4.electron transport

2,3,&4 are activities of the mitochondria and need oxygen to be performed.

Leaves that are not green make food by a process called stichothimia which takes in the energy and circulates it around the leaf
