Do you aerate your plants' potting mix?
I saw the post below from Darryl Cheng on @houseplantjournal on Instagram, and am wondering if anyone else swears by aerating their houseplants' potting mix?

    Nicole I nearly killed my maidenhair fern by not aerating it. The water apparently was running down the inside edges of the pot and the majority of the roots stayed dry. Then one day, plant looked great in the morning, and when I came home, it was crispy all over.

    Pei I don't! I found fingers work just about the same. Or I'd let my plants tell me if they are thirsty. For example, I will hold off the water until they are "slightly" droopy.
