Does look like a very poorly Epipremnum aureum (Pothos, Devil's Ivy). Agree with previous answer regarding using proper potting soil, and keeping it out of full, direct sunlight, although some sun in the mornings or late afternoon is fine. One thing though - why is there what appears to be a rusty trowel inserted into the pot? And I'm somewhat confused by your description of 'aerating' the plant, not sure what that means. If it means aerating the soil by disturbing it, don't, its not necessary and will be detrimental to the plant, and if it means moving it around so it gets more air, don't do that either - there's plenty of air everywhere and most plants kept indoors do not appreciate draughts.
The trowel should be removed, the plant turned out and repotted in proper potting compost, into a clean pot with drainage holes, watered thoroughly and allowed to drain down, then stood somewhere indoors where it gets reasonable light without being exposed to hot sun all day. Ongoing, water when the surface of the compost feels dry to the touch, and empty any outer tray or pot 30 minutes after watering so its not left sitting in water. Its probably sensible to cut back the long stem to promote new growth from the base of the plant too. Do not insert any random objects into the potting soil, it will interfere with the root system.
This plant can be grown outdoors if you have a suitable climate - it will not tolerate frost. Outdoors, once it's got used to it, partial sun is fine.
