How to oxygenate your houseplants

All living things, including our beloved houseplants, need oxygen to survive and thrive! That's why we encourage you to oxygenate your plant babes every so often.
How do you do this, you ask? Fear not, we are here to lend you a (dirty) hand.
Whether your plant is growing in soil or water (propagating and hydroponics), the plant's roots require oxygen to survive and function at its fullest potential. To oxygenate the soil, regularly drill holes (gently without causing damage to the root structure) with a chopstick, skewer or any other object you find that is pointy, strong and effective for this purpose. If the soil is overly-compacted or damp, this means that there's no room for oxygen to circulate - therefore your plant babies will require some TLC to breathe.
