Go to: Related nodes. Attributes.

Derived from a transform, this is a base class for the nodes that automatically create the children below them, depending on the number of inputs available on their input attribute (see derived classes.)

After the connections have been made, it is necessary to trigger the initial creation by evaluating an output attribute of the var-group. See the derived classes for the actual names of the attributes, but doing something like: getAttr varGroup1.local should do the trick. Once there is at least one object created, changing the number of inputs to the var-group will cause the creation of the extra objects below it.
