In this series, I wish to present visually the connection of inherent spiral shapes found in the Succulent plant species. These spiral shapes conform almost perfectly to what is known as the 'golden spiral', which is derived from a mathematic formula. A golden spiral is a logarithmic spiral which has a growth factor of Phi. This means that it gets wider by a factor of Phi for every quarter turn it makes. These plants from their new cells in spiral which in turn produce this pattern.
