Have you had a wind storm lately? It could be that they got twisted in a hard wind and some of the ribs in the stems may have become cracked. Not enough to kill the plant, but enough so the support was damaged.

If this is the case, you can use stakes to replace the lost support. You can use pantyhose to tie the stakes.
