Romanesco Broccoli

This is the Romanesco Broccoli, which is a natural vegetable that grows in accordance to the Fibonacci Sequence, is a fractal, and is three dimensional.

# Basic Description

Although the broccoli looks like it grows in accordance to the Fibonacci sequence, does it really? By making ratios between the distances of the vertices of each iteration of the fractals, and then making ratios between the numbers in the fibonacci sequence, then plotting them, the growth of the broccoli in accordance to the sequence was proved.

# A More Mathematical Explanation

Proof that the Romanesco Broccoli is a natural example of the Fibonacci sequence:

It looks as if the [...]

Proof that the Romanesco Broccoli is a natural example of the Fibonacci sequence: It looks as if the Romanesco Broccoli is a natural example of the Fibonacci sequence. However appearances can deceive. A mathematical and scientific proof does not. The following is the graph:
