My little guy (not so little anymore) has some stems that are heavy and leaning agains the side of its pot. None of them are new since I put it in the pot (and checked to make sure there were no suckers.) They seem healthy enough at the moment, but I do wonder if it's a problem that they're growing away from the center and leaning. And if it is, what's best to do about it?

I cut mine back a few times....especially when it started losing its leaves on the lower part of the stem. It was looking 'leggy'. I just cut it back like pruning a rose, 45* cut at a leaf node. I have also cut whole stems right to the base with no troubles.

Your plant looks nice and healthy. It might be that in time you will need to repot it in a larger pot....if you want to keep it that size.
