Do plants help make the air more humid?

    Usually, it’s more the humidity makes for the plants.  Humid environment is really just a result of being close to the equator (or just in a generally hot environment), and having ample precipitation.  Precipitation is mainly caused by locations near bodies of water, and the position of jet streams.  High movement of water to the area, plus hot conditions to evaporate the water consistently, plus little wind activity, equals high humidity.

    Plants are a source of humidity. When plants lose water through a process called transpiration, that water is sucked back up into the atmosphere and recycled. I would say plants help maintain humidity, rather than make the air more humid than it initially was.
