The house I live sits on the rock and I guess there would some problem with isolation and maybe some other issue as well. I have to clean the room time to time with vinegar.

Is there any indoor plant that would help me with mold in the room?

This question came from our site for contractors and serious DIYers.

Questions about plants are better suited for the gardening site. Migrating. – BMitch Aug 12 '12 at 14:28

Mold loves moisture, and plants typically like moisture too, so I don't think any plant is going to help control mold. If you introduced 20 plants, you'd also be introducing a lot of moist soil which would further increase the humidity. The best way to control mold is to keep everything dry.

As Steven points out about plants and moister, your best thing to do is get more ventilation in your house. You could also use an Air Purifier with a HEPA filter to reduce the mold spores floating around.
