My plant is a gift, I have had it about 6 months. It is about 2 1/2 ft. tall and has always had a gorgeous red top of about 12 inches. In the last couple of weeks, the top 4-6 inches is turning a lighter colour (slightly beige). Is this normal or am I doing something wrong? I keep it in a south facing window, which has a curtain 1/2 way up so it does not get direct sun. I water it as told by the florist. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.
