Double EDIT: I didn't realize how far along my new growth has come in 7 short weeks
First, I want to say they look good!

As to your question about color - while they are not my project plants, I have two gloedenianas at the moment. They are younger than yours, but they get ~6hrs of direct sun a day and are mostly purple as a result. Yours may be okay, or may end up needing a bump. During the rainy time, was there predominantly cloud cover for those four weeks? If so, that may have been long enough for it to lose the red but it might get it back now.
