Will this cause strenuous issue in the future?
Despite all of my best efforts to guide her without harming her, this plant is just bound and determined to keep her main stem at a 45 degree angle.
The plant appears perfectly healthy otherwise besides a couple brittle leaves, and the stem is exceptionally strong compared to my other plants. So as of now there is no immediate issue.
My question; is this something known to cause issues in the later parts of the plant's life? I can't shake the thought of a toppling plant in the near future. I ask mostly because I would much prefer to leave the plant be.
edit; It's just a mystery seedling, so I'm not quite as worried as I might be. More curiosity than anxiety.

Reason: missing infos
Is it growing towards the light? Sometimes when small plants are searching for light, they stretch for it causing them to grow at an angle like that. I would put the light on the opposite side, or just move the plant around to see if that does the trick. Otherwise, wait until it gets more mature and secure it with a dowel or something so it wont get top heavy and fall over.
The plant itself wasn't growing towards the light, it just grew that way. You never know with these bagseed types =/

Anyway, thanks for the tip, works for the most part, if anything i'll give it support in the future.
