Flowers and people need many of the same requirements to be healthy. Both need water to live, require many of the same nutrients such as calcium, potassium, and magnesium, while both have need of sunshine for photosynthesis.

Vitamin D is synthesized in the skin through a photosynthetic reaction triggered by exposure to sunshine.1
