A dying black prince succulent is usually because of too much moisture around the roots from over watering or damp soils which causes the leaves to turn soft and turn brown or yellow. Not enough sun causes black prince succulents to grow leggy with the leaves turn green and the lower leaves dying back.
One may also ask, does Black Prince like full sun?
It does well in full to partial sun. Plant in an area of your garden that gets 6 hours of sunlight a day. If planting indoors, or bringing inside for the winter, place in a room that gets a lot of sunlight, such as near a southern-facing window (if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere).

How do I keep Black Prince black?
Actually, with this echeveria and other succulents, it is best to water at the soil level, keeping the leaves fairly dry. Water sparingly, but provide more water in spring and summer. Let soil dry out between waterings. Cut back to less water in winter, sometimes once a month is appropriate.
When should I repot Black Prince?
The Black Prince succulent is small, so it probably won’t outgrow its container. If you have your heart set on a new pot though, transplanting is easy. Repot when the soil is dry so you can easily dust off the roots.
Why do succulents go red?
Some succulent plants naturally get reddish tips on their leaves when exposed to full sun or extreme heat. The plant is coping with the extreme heat by producing a red pigment (carotenoids) on its foliage to protect itself from sunburn.
How do you water Echeveria succulents?
To water Echeveria properly, completely wet the soil all the way through by watering thoroughly a couple of times. This ensures that the whole soil column gets wet. Then allow it to dry completely before watering again for healthy roots. Avoid keeping the soil damp, and always use fast draining soil.
