I have created a procedural plant using geo nodes that i would like to scatte on a mesh using particles system. When i instance oject selecting the plant as a target, only the curve appears and not the leafs.

What should i do to proceed correctly and make everything appear?

thank you

  • $\begingroup$ My first guess is Realize Instances. I see one in your tree, but I haven't looked closely at what you're doing. $\endgroup$ Commented May 24 at 16:03
  • $\begingroup$ Of course you can scatter in geonodes as well $\endgroup$ Commented May 24 at 16:03
  • $\begingroup$ @AllenSimpson You do realize the question already had an accepted answer before you commented and yes, Realize Instances was the issue ;) $\endgroup$ Commented May 24 at 16:35

Your leaves are just instances, they have to be real geometry to be used in the particle system. Plug a Realize Instances node between the Join Geometry and the Group Output nodes.
