Hypoestes kind of does that in the winter. Put it where it gets more sunshine or on a table under a lamp. In the summer it can go in a shady place outside. You can take cuttings of it and root it in water. It also comes in a darker red color, and white. I have not had one in a long long time.

You may need to feed it or fertilize. When I have a plant problem I go to the nursery. They know egverything aboutyour plants and can tell you what you may be doing wrong.
