copy object then rescale...?

I made some plants out of particles. Looked good so I duplicated it, but then when I want to scale it down, (the one I duplicated…) it always returns to the same shape of the original. I suppose this has something to do with clearing something…and probably applies to any object…having brain freeze at the moment…Cindy

That’s the nature of particles. They can made into an object but then they tend to not render because they lack faces and materials. For some reason the duplicated particles must share property with the original. Maybe it’ll change in the future but for now I don’t think anyone can be of much help.
