LOCATION: Plant in well drained soil in sun for maximum leaf colour. CARE: Water when the top of the soil is dry; be careful not to overwater. Water around the plant or into its cachepot or saucer, not onto the rosette. Carefully pull away any dead dry leaves from the edge of the rosette.
Considering this, what does pink mean on a succulent?
The coloration is from stress. This is a normal response to a plant that is either being too cold or hot, having too little water, and low mix nutrition. So growers induce these stressful conditions to get the color. The more ideal the situation–adequate water, good temp, good mix–plants turn green.

The pink colorations in plants (along with purples, reds, and blacks) are caused by a group of plant pigments called anthocyanins. … Because each leaf has less green coloration in it and more pink, these leaves need slightly more light than usual to achieve the same level of glucose output through photosynthesis.
Succulents need bright sunlight all day or at least 6 hours a day to become “stressed” and display their bright colors. If you grow succulents indoors, south-facing windows are a must to allow your plants to receive enough sunlight, grow healthily and maintain their vibrant red/pink color.
Pink discoloration of a Christmas cactus (Schlumbergera bridgesii) can be indicative of a problem called root rot, which results from overwatering or poor drainage.
