Zebra plant leaves curling?

Hi,
Has anyone ever had their zebra plants’ leaves curl or bend at the tips? My plant otherwise looks healthy; new growths and everything. Am I doing something wrong?
I will also note that it was painted when I bought it. I have a pink one too and while that ones leaves are also bent at the tips, the bending is much more subtle. Thanks!

Reaching for light. Rotate daily as if it were on a clock. Every twelve days should return it to the original position and light should pull the leaves evenly or you may set it out in the direct sun for a few hours a day to make it reach up. I would straighten it out with rotation and then do outside conditioning. I just fixed one two days ago, it is standing up now and was all the way sideways on Friday.
I’m curious too
@Mikie Thank you!
