Echeveria affinis ‘Black Knight’ and Echeveria ‘Black Prince’ are some very popular succulents right now. Their deep, moody color is a nice contrast to the bright greens and blues that we commonly see in succulent collections. A lot of times, I see these two getting confused and found myself getting the two mixed up as well. Here they are side by side for reference so we can quickly tell the difference between the two.
