This descriptive study of student difficulties prospective teachers understand the physiology of plant material made to get a picture of the physiology of plant material profile that is difficult for prospective teachers of biology students. The study involved a number of biology students ?LPTK? semester 4 in South Sumatra as research subjects (n = 36). Gathering data was used open and closed questionnaires by using Likert scale. The data were statistically processed simple. The results showed that the most difficult topics of each group of plant physiology topics according to prospective biology teachers as following photosynthesis (38.9%), fotoperiodisme and vernalization (33.3%), and nutrient absorption of minerals (30.11%). Physiology of plant material to be difficult according to the student because in studying the physiology of plants needed a lot of chemical formulas and phase chemical reactions, mathematical calculations and basic principles of physics in understanding it. Material for plant physiology easy to understand and interesting, it is suggested by the student learning associated with everyday life, using the method of discussion, equipped with a handout, practical activities and concludes with a quiz. The result showed that the learning meaningful to students of plant physiology teacher candidates, need to be prepared materials, learning and authentic assessment that provides challenges and skills provision that could apply to real situations, and should be continuous and periodic assessment Keywords: meaningful learning, level of difficulty, plant physiology, prospective teachers of biology students.
