My plant is young (only ~7cm at present).

It has variegated leaves with the middle of the leaf tending to be a pea green colour and the rest being a pale green.

Most of the leaves, at least the younger ones, also have a slightly pink tinge to the edges of the leaves.

The stem is quite dark red but one of the stems is green on one side.
