It remains smallish for this genus, about 15cm/6in in height and is thus very suitable in the foreground.

Okay thank Byron, Yes it was labeled as "Oriental" The new leaves are difinitely pinkish and transparent. Some more then others. Which is why I was starting to wonder. Glad to know that is normal.
