IS there a tutorial that gets me close to the same process of growing a big leaf much like the daisies grow in the default library with the exception that I just want one big one and not multiple

Start with the "daisies" emitter you're talking about, since it's close to what you want.

- Add it to the stage.
- Open the emitter properties dialog.
- Click the "particles" tab, and check "single".
- Now select the "active" property in the hierarchy, and add a point in the graph at frame 100 or so, then adjust that until it's the way you want it.
- You may need to adjust the "size over life" graph too.
- On the "Change Shape" page of the particles page, select the leaf image (if it's in the library) or click the "new shape" button and load your own leaf image.

That's basically it.
