You mean it's a Blender problem? Or LuxCore related/bug?

Thanks for the kind words everyone...
Here are some not great not terrible palm tree trunks.
Have you a reference? it seems that the trunk are too "leafy"... but probably they're right...
Probably every piece of the trunk should be bigger and less curved toward outside... but just my memory...

in blender it looked ok, during rendering wrong....

However when I closed and reopened blender everything was back in place(I'm still investigating). So something(particles) didn't update when I was moving and scaling stuff until I reloaded blender/scene. I'm gonna assume it's blender problem...?

Edit: wrong.. it's all over place.. not sure why... shit

unfortunately, there are some crazy variants with how this looks... I picked what I liked from the references :D

Sounds like a Blender problem, their particle system code is a mess.

Oh no, if I link this to main scene then hair particles are completely off place.... Anyone knows how to fix that?
Have you tried to bake cache to disc before you linked the particles? Linked particles should use the same cache file, maybe you have to set path again for the main scene.

I haven't. Gotta figure something cause otherwise I can go back and start again.

oh well... it's a complete mess.. linked particles don't update position or scale and appended don't update scale, so I can't just link and toy around with the palms without completely fucking it up.... :evil:

I'm gonna have to do without hair particles...
