I thought it was the opposite - will grow flatter with low light and mote upright with high light. This would make more sense to me. Unlike a bunch plant that csn grow fast and reach for the light, a sword can't. So to get more light on its leaf surfaces, it spreads out so the plant has more surface area touched by light

a simple example:


pogostemon helferi will grow small as height if plenty of light, and will grow upwards if the light is not sufficient. you can make the test.


it is not an exeption in plants physiology, only a very simple example.
