Anybody ever seen a growth pattern like this? I think the plant grew towards the morning sun originally so I rotated it but it never adjusted to the new position of the sun and instead continued growing in one direction ever since. It's super happy continuously flowering and putting on lots of growth. For whatever reason it's being a little stubborn. The first picture is from one side and the second is from the opposite side. The glass table makes things tricky to see I can upload a better pic if needed. Any way to get it to grow upwards?
