Too much love and care is killing bleeding hearts

Q: I ordered a bleeding heart plant that was just starting to grow when it arrived. I potted it according to the directions. The soil I used was Jiffy Organic Seed Starting Mix and I mixed in some Pennington All Purpose Plant Food 6-10-10. After two weeks, my plant turned brown. All it has is a tiny, brittle, thin stem. I took it out of the pot to clean off the roots, but there weren't that many.
