The site began in 2005 but content is continually updated. At the bottom of the site page is copyright 2019, which always reflects the current year. For your project you could say "copyright 2005-2019."

These bulbs have been "forced" to flower right off... This is something that many plants cannot recover from, and will die shortly after.

Fortunately, the Amaryllis you have is well adapted to forcing. It will grow just fine. This article will give you more information on what to do from here: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/bgen/how-to-plant-a-flower-bulb-in-your-garden-after-winter-forcing.htm

That type of information is best obtained from a recipe website, of which there are many, or your local extension center. Ours is a gardening how-to website.

Q. I Find It Difficult To Choose A Family Of Flowering Plants

I need to write a compare and contrast essay about different genera within the same family of flowers. Please help to choose a family of flowers for that task, `cause I really have no experience in gardening.

This can be done with any family of plants, so there isn't really a way that I can help you choose. That is something that will be completely up to you. Just compare and contrast a family of plants that you like. Find a plant that is of interest to you, then find out what family it is in. Then you can compare and contrast them with research.

One of my favorites is the Rosaceae family. It consists of about 5000 species in about 90 genera. Cherries, Blackberries, and Roses are all part of this family.

The best that I can gather is that it is a member of the Ephedra genus. This will give you an overview of the Genus: http://online.sfsu.edu/bholzman/courses/Spring05projects/Ephedra.htm

The picture does seem to show that the plant is under some stress, as all pitchers should not be turning at the same time. This can happen for a number of reasons. I will go over a few...

Too much light- These will not survive full sun. They normally reside in the canopy of trees with no soil and attached to bark, or around the base of the tree. They are shaded by leaves and only receive bright filtered light, never direct.

Water getting in the pitchers - Pouring water, or letting these get direct rain for an extended period, will cause the enzymes within the pitcher to become dilute, causing the premature death of the pitcher. This is usually avoided in nature since they are protected by a tree's canopy.

Cooler weather - Since This is a tropical variety, you will start to notice the quick death of the plant when the temperatures get down around 50 degrees or so. They will need to be brought in during this time.

For now, this article will help get you started to caring for these properly: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/pitcher-plants/hanging-pitcher-plants.htm

Q. Is there a French version of this web site….for my husband ?

He really likes what I try my best to translate to him ….but, he usually has more questions after my translation.
He loves gardening, but needs male sided answers, I don’t think it will change at 70 years old.
