You can keep your plant compact by pinching out the very tips of each of the stems every few weeks. Wherever you pinch the plant will produce two stems where there was once only one. When the flowers fade you can pinch them off the plant, taking some of the stem with you. You can also just randomly pinch or prune the stems back to promote new growth. Just cut back to just in front of a leaf and a new stem will grow. Hope this information helps!
