The leaves will take on a pinkish hue around the margins when the plant is exposed to brighter conditions and in colder temperatures as well The pale color of the leaves is due to the thick layer of epicuticular wax which coats its leaves. You should be a bit more gentle when handling these beauties, as our fingerprints often smudge and mark the protective wax coating (this doesn’t damage the plants health, but just leaves a less attractive mark on the leaves).
Deep watering and then allowing the soil to dry out completely is best.
