Help - hair simulator is generating hair over a phantom sphere. Pics included


Hi everyone,

I’d really appreciate some help as I can’t for the life of me work out what’s going on here. When I add hair to my spheres, it seems to generate over a ‘phantom sphere’. I currently have two spheres (cloned) which knock into each other like a mini Newton’s Cradle.

Can anyone see from these screenshots what’s happening? The spheres with the red links are the ones I want hair on.
