    Hi Barbara, I have went through quite a few articles on this and what most of them say is; Two things are required for the red color: a certain amount of chill--but not frost--and a little direct sunlight. If you move it to a cool room with a sunny window, you will probably get some color.

    I am guessing that the plant maybe missing a nutrient. I would research the internet for the plant and read information about it.
