Hygro yellowing

I'm also a newbie in the field of aquatics.  I've had a 20gal for about
4 months now.  In my tank I have java ferns, anubias var. nana, crypts,
and a hygrophilia polysperma which I purchased about a month ago.  The
three stems have only sprouted a few small leaves at the top, but these
are beginning to turn brown.  The older leaves are yellowing and one
leaf has even turned brown and is rotting.  I am wondering why this is
happening because the rest of my plants are doing fine -my crypts
produce a new leaf every week or so and my ferns are a vivid green.  I
have heard people often say they use their hygro as a 'canary' and if it
isn't growing properly there is something wrong with the tank.  
Just for the records,  I haven't checked the water for many levels but I
do know:
CO2=diy injection (directly into intake tube)
hardness=moderately hard
fertilizer=PlantGro by Flora Care

What's going on?!? I'm worried about the rest of my plants and fish...
Thanks in advance,
