Default Wisteria Dying

I have a 55 gallon planted tank with 2x54W T5 running 9 hours per day. Excel is dosed every other day. No macro or micro dosing. 50% water changes every 2 weeks of local tap water (liquid rock). The tank has been setup for 3 months now. My Water Wisteria was growing like crazy and then a few weeks ago it seems to be slowly dying away. Crypt wendtii, java ferns, & Hydrocotyle 'japan' are doing great. I do not overfeed. I'm baffled why the Wisteria is doing so badly since it's supposed to be an easy plant to keep.

Does anybody have any ideas why the plant isn't doing well as of lately and/or possible suggestions to get it back into good looking shape?
