Nature, The Golden Ratio, and Fibonacci

Monday 25 November 2013 at 05:49 am

 

Plants can grow new cells in spirals, such as the pattern of seeds in this beautiful sunflower.

The spiral happens naturally because each new cell is formed after a turn.

"New cell, then turn,
then another cell, then turn, ..."

How Far to Turn?

So, if you were a plant, how much of a turn would you have in between new cells?

If you don't turn at all, you would have a straight line.
But that is a very poor design ... you want something round that will hold together with no gaps.

Why not try to find the best value for yourself?
