I added my grass using Geometry Nodes, and now I want to add my flowers as well. I'm sure it's possible, but I'm not sure what I'm missing. When I select the flower to place on my "grass" it does not show up.

    $\begingroup$ The input is missing... Simply connect your existing grid to the "Mesh" input of the Distribute Points on Faces node. $\endgroup$

You have several possibilities to achieve this.

In all cases, however, it is important that you also give the node Distribute Points on Faces a mesh on whose faces the points are to be distributed.

  1. You can use the same mesh as often as you want:

  2. You can also separate the points created on the faces into two groups and then instantiate on them:

    enter image description here
    (Here I control the distribution between grass and flowers with the node Random Value)

  3. Or you can also use multiple objects from a collection for this, and use the Pick Instance and Instance Index option to control the distribution:

    enter image description here
    (Here I control the distribution between grass and flowers also with the node Random Value and use their values as Instance Index)

PS: For all three examples there are a lot of answers here on blender.stackexchange.com. Please use the search to find the right example for you.
