I think it looks great! Maintain the watering, and you'll end up with a lovely natural-looking plant. When it blooms, Wow!

Also, don't be concerned if it does start to lean sideways... in nature, they grow sideways or facing downward, which drains rainwater that otherwise would collect in the crown. (Mother Nature is very clever! ) You can blot up any water that might get caught there, in nature no little fairies flying around with tissues!

Thank you for that Roberta.

Several of them are growing sideways and I wondered if it was a problem or if they were just expressing themselves.

I have well water here so when I run water through the bark I try but sometimes get water between the leaves and stem and then have to blow the water out.
