Red to green leaves
It grows from the top only. The leaves begin red and turn green. I was suggested that I water it by putting water in the leaves. Is this a succulent?
I don't have a picture.

A picture would be very helpful - from your description of the plant, I don't know what this plant could be, but if someone told you to put water in the leaves, the only plant I know of that you do this to is the Bromeliad. These form a tube which should remain full of water, and it attracts small insects which fall in, and become the fertilizer for the plant. Another strange and unusual plant.
They are a long lived and well behaved plant as long as their tube stays filled with water. I suggest using warmed water as they are jungle plants.
