Black succulents aren’t new, but they are popular around this time of year for their autumnal feeling and Halloween aura.

There are a number of different kinds of black succulents, the most popular being the “Black Prince”.

The black prince produces rosettes of thick, full leaves that, in a particular light, actually show a dark purple shade. The only weakness of the black prince is that it does need to sit in direct sunlight, otherwise it’ll lose its deep, dark colouring.

Black succulents are smaller than traditional green versions, growing up to six inches in height, and can exist comfortably indoors in most homes.

Prices for Halloween succulents like the Black Prince range from £14, and are available from Amazon or Gardens4you online.
