Are the tubes that form the vase hollow by any chance?

In the design, the tubes are not hollow but you can make them hollow by setting the infill to 0% in the print settings of your 3D printer software.

Some parts of this are really hard to print well. What layer height do you recommend?

I printed at the finest layer height because it has a curved surface. However I think the key on a print like this is make it is as large as possible on your build plate, doing that will make those angled parts print more reliably. It wasn't a problem on my Makerbot Rep 2 but I did make it fill the the build volume.
