RE: wet basement, will plants help??

sounds like you might need a drainage system. Water getting in the basement can cause other problems because freeze thaw could cause cracks in your walls. I dont believe Plants will stop enough of the moisture.
Did you try the basement forum?

Here is a link that might be useful: basements
