A halophyte is a plant that naturally grows where it is affected by salinity in the root area or by salt spray, such as in saline semi-deserts, mangrove swamps, marshes and sloughs, and seashores. An example of a halophyte is the salt marsh grass Spartina alterniflora (smooth cordgrass).

Halo mean salts and phytic mean plants so plant in saline area are halophytes.

Halophytes is a plant which grows in salty area. Their root have special quality i.e. called pneumatophores.

Halophytes are those plant which grow in salt region i.e.sunderban delta where the river come along with salt (nutrients) thus here mangrove plant are found and also know that here germination of seed without reaching to soil is called viviparity.

@Rina Mondal.

Mesophytes is a plant needing only a moderate amount of water.

Girma Asfaw said: (Jun 13, 2016)  
Halophytes are any plants that can tolerate an environment having a high salt content while hydrophytes are plants living in or requires an abundance of water usually except the seaweed.

But mesophytes are normal terrestrial plants that grow in environments having an average supply of water.

A halophyte is a plant that grows in waters of high salinity, coming into contact with saline water through its roots or by salt sprays, such as in saline semi-deserts, mangrove swamps, marshes and sloughs and seashores.

An example of a halophyte is the salt marsh grass Spartina alterniflora (smooth cordgrass).

Sbjat said: (Dec 14, 2017)  
Halophyte are those which habited to grow in saline water only.

Generi said: (Apr 20, 2020)  
The Roots of Halophytes have more salt than the salty soil. So, their roots keep absorbing water from the soil.
