How disappointing that your plant isn't hale and hardy and growing upright on its own. Could the roots be competing too much for water and nutrients? Or maybe it isn't planted deeply enough? In any case, I'd stake it upright to give it a little support. Perhaps as it matures it will grow a stronger root system. I hope so!
