I do like caudiciform plants, who don't? I have 2 Cyphostemma's, one is in the ground and the other in a pot. 

Cyphostemma juttae is just starting to grow leaves. Look very very close and you can see the new leaves.

Cyphostemma cirrhosum ssp ? red is all in flower. It's been active for about 2 weeks or so.
Plants in pots start to grow sooner then the plants in the ground, because they get watered.

When I got as Cyphostemma cirrhosum ssp ? red - it had new red leaves but I have not seen any red leaves on any more new leaves. Oh well it's still a nice plant.

Give it more direct sun. The new foliage will be red.
It can handle and prefers full sun.
