MY plant is growing more like a vine why. When I purchased is was amazing then it started to grow up with hanging roots, so stacked it up, but it never grew more like a bush. It’s just tall and skinny. Now I’m unhappy with the look , can I put in ground in zone 9b?

It may not be getting enough light and is stretching upward.
It should grow up and out but not like a vine. You could try growing a couple cuttings from it and adding them to the pot to make it fuller. It is also recommended to add a totem for them to cling to.
