you can increase the open_cursors by using the following statement

ALTER SYSTEM SET open_cursors=300 SCOPE=SPFILE; -- >> you can use different value instead

Following query may help you
SELECT c.sid AS "Oracle Session ID",
         c.address AS "SQL Address",
         c.hash_value AS "SQL Address Hash",
         COUNT (c.saddr) AS "Cursor Copies",
         c.SQL_ID,
         c.SQL_TEXT
    FROM v$open_cursor c
GROUP BY c.sid,
         c.address,
         c.hash_value,
         c.SQL_ID,
         c.SQL_TEXT
  HAVING COUNT (c.saddr) > 2
ORDER BY 3 DESC;

All the apex sessions have more values. ie

SID                Program                            No. of Open Cursors
425      JDBC Thin Client      347
275      JDBC Thin Client      96
334      JDBC Thin Client      80

All the sessions are in waiting stage from long time.

Why apex sessions requires so may cursors?
