Default High Color Mini Question

So my mother in law has a high color mini that is about 3 feet tall now. It had at one point significant amount of red in the leaves. It has now gone completely green. Is this a function of sunlight? fertilizer?

Mine has been through 2 cycles of pup and die, so has never been more that about 20". I had a had time finding it, and yes, there is very little red left in the leaves.

Mine is abut 20-24" tall, and has very deep red on the leaves... As a pup it was indoors without enough light and was totally green, but it now looks like it lost a fight with a bottle of merlot!
