Hi Zack,
I have the same situation with my E. cordiflorus. Since the plant is growing 
like gangbusters I am not too worried. When this started I added a piece of 
jobes stick underneath it. The new leaves still begin a little red but then 
turn to green much quicker than before. I believe that red in plants that 
aren't normally red may be a sign of nitrogen deficiency. Check out Karen
