So, in this sense, it's really not about the order, but because of this rule. I hope I'm not overdoing this and making it more complex.

comment Article usage in Spanish
Well, I think I got it. Please see this Yale university pdf, specifically section 1 of Additional uses of the definite article THE. I know it's for English, but I'm quite sure it applies to Spanish the same way. In this example, it requires the article because it's referring to a class or type of thing (plants go into this category).

Not quite, @AmitSchandillia. It's all in the order of the sentences. It's quite the same as in English, actually. Consider the Wikipedia article on apples. Notice how the article starts with "The apple"? It's still talking about apples in general, but the sentence must be started this way. I don't recall right now the specific grammar rules about this situation but I'll look into it once I have the chance.

I don't think water being uncountable has something to do with this. In fact, in the second set, manzana being countable doesn't have anything to do either. Consider "El agua es un compuesto químico". Here, the article is necessary even though agua is uncountable.

comment Alternativas menos negativas a “desafortunadamente”
Aunque concuerdo con Nico (el de los comentarios a la pregunta) en que "lamentable" suena más negativo que "desafortunado", me quedo con la respuesta porque me dio la idea de no usar una palabra como tal, sino simplemente dar la frase, como en el primer ejemplo que expones, @Nicolás. ¡Gracias!

comment Alternativas menos negativas a “desafortunadamente”
Lo es, @Nico. Aunque bien la respuesta de Nicolás me una buena idea de algo que puede funcionar para mi caso en particular, sí creo que "desafortunadamente" sea de lo menos negativo en su categoría, en parte porque lleva la connotación de que es algo que no está en nuestras manos.
