This Ping. Aphrodite had all green leave for a while. Now I am seeing this (see photo). Can anyone tell me if this is how they get pigment, or is the plant suffering from something?

Can't say definitively as I don't own this particular ping but it looks like its beginning to blush. The leaf itself looks very healthy. Becomes a lot more apparent if the new leaves are coming in with that color as well. My moranensis did something strange like that. Stayed green forever and then it eventually began to color around the edges followed by the entire thing over time.
