The new leaves unfurl coppery/red, then slowly goes through color changes of reds, oranges, yellows, and finally older leaves fade to green all the while retaining yellow maculated spots over the entire leaf. Depending on light conditions it will sometimes exhibit pinks in the leaf and stalk. Leaves can get quite big and ruffled or wavy when adult stage.
