English ivy, calathea and chlorophytum are champions in the fight against excessive moisture.

The cold season multiplied by the coolness of living spaces creates a problem of dampness. And excessive amounts of water vapour in the air, in turn, lead to undesirable things such as condensation on windows and mould growth.

However, dehumidification can be done not only with the help of special devices that do not always look aesthetically pleasing and match the style of your home. Houseplants can also help with this. The Express has named 8 species that feed on moisture from the air and will be happy to help you with this task.


This flowering tropical plant does not like bright light, but it does like humid air. Put it in a place where it is not exposed to direct sunlight, and it will start to feed on the water vapour you don't need and make the atmosphere in the room more comfortable.


In addition to feeding on moisture from the air, this plant is also able to purify the atmosphere of your room from formaldehyde. It is a very low-maintenance species that is best planted in hanging pots. In this case, when it releases a "moustache" with new shoots, the flowerpot will look most impressive.


Since this tropical species from the bromeliad family does not have the usual roots through which it would receive nutrition from the substrate, it relies on its ability to absorb nutrients and water from the air. So, its absorption capacity may even surprise you.


This tree is native to warm and humid Australia. It is highly valued for its ability to drain wet soils. But at the same time, it also extracts excess water from the air. In nature, the naioli grows up to 20-25 metres tall, but its growth can be controlled so that it feels good at home.


This plant with bright leaves decorated with colourful veins does not need a lot of sunlight, but thrives in very high humidity. It is considered a good choice even for bathrooms.

Bamboo palm

The benefits of this plant will be twofold - it will not only dry out the humid air, but also cleanse it of harmful substances. In addition, it does not need a lot of sun to feel good. Therefore, find a comfortable shade for the flowerpot and do not forget to water it moderately from time to time.


Few people know that this familiar aromatic plant, which can be used in cooking and drinking, can also be a good helper in the fight against dampness. That's why it's a good idea to have this flowerpot in the kitchen - it will fight the steam in the air and will always be at hand when you're preparing a salad.

English ivy

This native of the British Isles was created to live in high humidity and absorb water from the air. It curls beautifully around furniture or special supports, cleanses the air from pollution and absorbs excess moisture. It also doesn't need a lot of sun and doesn't like excessive heat - an ideal choice for northern rooms.

Previously OBOZREVATEL told about NASA study, which identified the most effective plants for air purification.
