Your Inch Plant (Tradescantia zebrina) looks to have normal growth habit to me. As those upward growing stems mature and grow longer, they will likely have more of a prostrate habit.

Agreed, it looks happy, honestly better than mine normally do indoors by a mile. Mine is outside for summer and will adapt and get huge by fall

Think of it as a tug-of-war between the sun pulling the vines upward and gravity tugging then downward. Over the long term, gravity usually prevails.
