It's normal for the leaves to come out purple.
Stolons are modified stems - Utricularia do not actually have any roots at all, but instead a network of these modified stems which are the "roots" you see on them. It's a lot more decentralized than a normal plant in that leaves can pop up pretty much anywhere among the stolon system, and you can lop off pieces of stolon and grow them out as a result. Like other sect. Orchidioides Utricularia, U. reniformis has somewhat more chunky stolons that may rot a bit more easily when you cut them but it still works well. (Technically the "leaves" are also modified stems and the real leaves are the bladders, but this isn't super important).
