Some say it's easy while others say it's hard. You can usually gauge how difficult a plant is by how much it costs...downoi definitely is not cheap. I actually had 25 plants shed about 50% of their leaves (melted) when I put them in my tank. They are finally starting to grow but be aware that they can melt on you for a bit.
