The reddening of leaves in my tank means that I have high lighting and good co2. That's in my tank were I only have one stem (Bacopa caroliniana). Your stems, lighting and co2 may be different.

Often times plants will show some reddidh/brownish coloration on developing growth. Usually it will turn green once fully developed, unless it is the sort of plant that displays red leaves.

Oftentimes, stem plants will look more red towards the top of the tank due to increased lighting and/or CO2 levels.
