That's actually not strange at all... many wild orchids are Epiphytic orchids and naturally grow like that. In the rainforest, it is not uncommon to have tons of plants growing in the nooks and crannies of a tree's branches. Orchids, bromeliads, etc...
As for the two shots, I think the second is definitely my preferred version. I like the stronger colors in that one.
I agree with you that it needs a "bottom". And that is the problem with orchids - they're almost always impossible to frame nicely. I would actually recommend cloning out both of the bottom two flowers and then going for a tighter crop to eliminate the empty space that will cause.
