paint didn't stick

I painted my porch last year with a paint that was supposed to be for porch and decks. This year I noticed the paint was coming off. The porch was previously painted but with what type paint I don't know since I had recently moved into the house. Any thoughts on why it didn't adhere.

RE: paint didn't stick

Many causes:

* Water-vapor migration from below....
* Boards too close together...
* Too low to ground?
* No/weak ventilation...
* Bad/no prep = dirty lumber...
* Wrong product.

Most likely reason?!
ALL OF the above!
