I rescued this plant from the local Lowes. It was on the half price shelf in a dark corner of the store. Poor thing was almost dead and had lost many leaves to sun and fertilizer burns.
I repotted it, watered it and gave it a nice shelf to sit on. After about a month it began to perk up... though you can still see the damage done to the leaves.

The leaves are an odd assortment of browns, golds and greens, new growth comes up red. I've grown quite fond of this plant and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys odd colored leaves.
