My chives grow but the dont grow upward they tend to flop over. I keep the soil moist and I let it get partial sunlight and I have also tried to give it full sun light but it is still doing the same thing. What should I do?

Chives should not flop over if they are getting adequate sunshine. If they are floppy, they need to be harvested. Cutting the chives back will encourage healthy new growth and with at least 4 hours of direct sunshine, the new foliage should stand upright. Enjoy your chives!
