Answer: Based on your description I am not sure if what you are seeing is unusual or not. The leaves normally arch strongly upward and outward -- easily an overall diameter of 16 inches or so. Usually the leaves are rather sturdy and have good substance and are self supporting in that they do not drape down and drag on the table. They should be allowed to splay normally in order to gain as much sunlight as possible. If they are very lax, they may need more light or you may be overfertilizing for the amount of light available. In any case they need to be encouraged to grow as vigorously as possible to rebuild the bulb so it can bloom again next year. You may also find that the pots need to be rotated periodically to keep the growth somewhat symmetrical.
