Default Planting Bromeliads - Orientation

If this is a dumb question, I apologize. I feel like it's such a minor thing that no one sees any reason to say it.

When I planted two bromeliads, I simply put them each into a naturally occurring hole in a piece of mopani. They seem to be doing well enough, but they are not oriented with the opening straight up. One is up and slightly diagonal, and I think that one is fine, but the other one is a lot more horizontal. I mist a couple of times a day, and shoot a jet of water into each brom to rinse it out and leave some water sitting inside.

Will the wayward brom gradually grow to orient the right way? I can see that it is growing roots into the wood, so I feel somewhat confident that it's doing OK. If it's doomed to do poorly due to the orientation, I'd rather fix it before it gets too enmeshed with the mopani.

Thank you.
