Unhappy Converting to UV

I created a Paint FX shrub, then converted it to a polygon object in Maya 5. It created the stem and the leaves as two seperate objects, but the leaves are all connected together.

I need the leaf texture to be put on a UV map, instead using a texture from just Hypershade, and somehow make all the leaves texture correctly, since they are all one big polygon. Anyone know of a way to do this? Or at least a way to split apart each leaf into seperate entities so I can UV each one seperately?

Each leaf is probably uv mapped the same. Select the faces you want, edit poly > extract.

That made each triangle in each leaf a seperate polygon. Should I combine each leaf's triangles together?
