Red Leaves Appear Since the Season has Changed

Each year about this time of the calendar year this happens to a handful of hoya plants.  The leaves turn a nice blush of pink or red or any color in between.  Some collectors and growers claim that providing bright light will give the same affect but I am not sure that is the reason.  Nothing has changed for my plants that are happily growing under artificial lights and these few have made a drastic change on some of their foliage.  I find it amazing and stunning each year that this happens!
