Plant lovers, put down the watering can for a minute because I have some botanical news that’ll make your day a little bit freakier. Black succulents are the latest Halloween trend, and you’ll probably want one to complete your seasonal decor this year. In fact, they’re so chic you just may decide that these coal-colored plant babies are the only decorations you need.
I embrace color in my wardrobe all year until October rolls in. During the tenth month of the year, I feel an urge to channel Wednesday Addams mixed with a touch of Ozzy Osbourne and Angelina Jolie when she was in her gothic phase (ha I wish). Basically, I replace my normal pale pink manicure with OPI's iconic deep purple polish, Lincoln Park After Dark. So I was thrilled to learn that my plants can get a spooky little upgrade this year too.
If you're like me and your plant life is starting to look a little too merry for the ghostly holiday, then you’ll love the addition of a moody black succulent (which look amazing in one of the Halloween planters from Target, naturally). The plants come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and having never seen one IRL, I was surprised by how readily available they are online. Best of all, succulents are known for being resilient and adaptable, which is good news (for me at least), because in addition to now wanting a black plant, I also have a notorious black thumb. Below, six of the chicest black succulents to get your October started on the creepy note you and your plant coven crave.
