Particle system emitting objects with hair

I have an object, an icosphere, it has a particle system "hair" it emits a group of objects , now i have a plane and i want to give it a particle system emitting Lots of my icospheres but, it ONLY emits the icospheres and not the " hair" on the Spheres , so basically i want a particle system emitting and object with a hair particle system , hope you can help

You need to convert the plain first. Select the plain, goto Object Modifiers tab and hit 'convert' you should then see the sphere's particle system.

No that doesent work, the plain cannot be converted, maybe i im confusing,

ok so i got an icosphere, it has a particle system, that emits a group of objects , they are bsaically stuck to it ,

then i have a plain, and i want the plain to emit a particle system using the "icosphere"

when i do so, only the icospheres show up, but not the group of objects attatched to them

I literally copied the same steps you explained but hit the convert button for the plains particle system.
There's loads of tutorials on youtube, here's a couple to get you started.
Hair particles
Grouping objects
Good luck with your project
