For such kind of structure it will be hard to make it 100% perfect due to the principle of FDM, it is not easy to overcome the gravity.
For the surface approaching support, try dense layer. It may help some.

One thing I found is that if you need support them MAXIMIZE the support you use. Print it as one continuous mass instead of separate columns and it seems to give a better bottom surface. It also seems to help to print on a raft if printing a large area of support. last, it is very very tough to get off support that isn't at least 5mm thick. So I will raise the whole model a cm and support the entire bottom if it is bowl shaped on the bottom, cleans better.

try dense layer and reducing the "vertical offset top layers" in the support tab
