In my aquarium only the young leaves are brownish, mature leaves are normally green. There are three different clones in trade here (nursery Las Lucanas): "green", "brown" and "red". "Red" is really a lot darker, but also grows more slowly and is not as robust in my set-up. I think that "red" would be really striking in high light with CO2.
