It looks like there is still pixel data surrounding the image. 

Here a dirty trick - add a levels adjustment layer above and crank the settings - see if there is something there. 

Even a 1% transparent pixel will show up when you map.

Hi, in addition of Kevin's answer, you can select the plant, create a mask and double check the mask is black and not dark gray.
