If you leave a potted plant in the same position for a long time, only new leaves will grow on the side that receives the most light.
It is also important that you take a knife or a small garden trowel every month or two months and carefully circle the plant five or six centimeters. This will loosen the dirt around it, let in fresh air and force the plant to develop a new set of fine roots that absorb nutrients better. Do not dig the ground too close to the stems, as this could damage the main root system. All you are trying to do is loosen the dirt on the edge of the pot and cut the tops of the roots in this area so that they divide and produce more root tips.
