Normal Cephalotus Growth Habit

Alright all of you ceph gurus out there, I need advice. My cephalotus is growing in a 3 1/2 inch pot and seems to be doing well it is putting out new, larger pitchers and is coloring up nicely. The problem is that all fo the growth is piling up on top of one another. This causes the pitchers to turn sideways or even upside down. Is this normal? If it isn't, how can I fix it? Thin out some leaves and pitchers and try to root them?

I feel like this is just the ceph's clumping/piling habit. It seems pretty happy (and normal) to me.
You might want to leave it alone and let it do its thing.

EDIT: I am not an expert...

Perfectly normal Cephalotus growth habit. Over time they form massive mounds of pitchers with many facing the sky and ineffective at trapping insects.
