C'mon, don't be shy, I won't make fun of any plants that you think are hard to grow. My hardest plant? Well, I only keep low light stuff, so I don't really qualify to tell which one's hardest for me. Post what your hardest is here!!

Hygrophila pinnatifida - I think it dies as soon as you guys put my name on the Priority flat box.

For me, it would have to be Downoi...

That stuff is really starting to take off now in my 60G!

The bag is came in said Cardinalis but i haven't been able to find another picture of the stuff. At any rate it went from.

To one plant thats got 4 tiny tiny leaves left and should be completely dead within the next month. I've done well with everything else.
