Grass through glass?

Could anyone tell me how I can get grass to be visible through a glass/transparent texture? When I hit render the grass doesn't show unless I remove the glass texture from infront of it.

Thanks

Well if you're getting your grass using the hair effect. A quick google search told me to turn on all the checkboxes inside the render tab of the hair effect. Could that be it?

Hi Cassius, thanks for the response.

I am using hair and I have tried this but I'm having the problem that when I tick the Reflection/Refraction/Traced Shadows option it doesn't render at all, not even in Active View. When that option is unchecked you can't see the grass when rendered, only the glass, soil etc.
I'm not sure if its just that it would take a very long time to render but there isn't much grass there so not sure..

I've attached the settings I have..

Well the hair seems to be inside the cube's geometry. I'm not sure how it would respond to that. Maybe if you have the right setup already, try to convert the hair to polygons?
