I've never kept this plant, however, orange pigmentation is the result of a build up carotenoids in the leaves. The amount of build up is dependent on the plant's sugar production in the leaf. Light is the single most important factor in plant sugar production so the more light, the more orange pigmentation.

I would recommend a high light, acidic environment for the plant to obtain its best orange coloration.

Good luck and remember to post pics!
