A look at some of Port 68’s new collaboration with Jill Seale.
After 12 years of showing in InterHall’s temporary spaces, Port 68 has a new, permanent home in the curated space.

The thick stems and plump leaves of jade plant (Crassula ovata) can develop to look like a small tree over time. However, it’s really a drought-resistant succulent that doesn’t thoughts a bit in the event you let the soil in its pot almost fully dry out earlier than you water it again. Should you transfer it outdoors through the summer time, the additional sun and warmer temperatures may help trigger a growth spurt, which may also help your plant get closer to its most six-foot peak. We’ve been in a position to show …
