Im not sure what I have done to it, everything else is looking fine, so I upped the ferts a hair and trimmed things back to help promote growth but nothing so far.

the tank has trumpet snails for aeration, there is soil underneath (that is less than a year old) for ferts and I add to the water. I have little to no algae and nothing I do seems to be helping the plants. Suggestions? Ideas?

also as a side note, no melting, the leaves are not transparent or soft, they look just like a tomato plant that was left in the sun too long? Can you some how burn the plant? the light shouldnt be too high (if anything it should be too low...)

Transporting and replanting problems? Thats one thing I can think of; however, there is another instance... In college, my girlfriend and I had a 10 gallon tank that had only wisteria. It's one hell of a plant, we didn't add any additives to the tank and it grew like wildfire. I did notice that wisteria has a limited lifespan. After about 6-8 months, after it's reached it's most beautiful peak, I did notice that my plant did exactly what you're describing.
