More about Succulents

You can find The Golden Ratio throughout the natural world. You can also see The Golden Ratio illustrated in the succulent species of plant. The Golden Ratio is a special number found by dividing a line into two parts so that the longer part divided by the smaller part is also equal to the whole length divided by the longer part. It is often symbolized using phi, after the 21st letter of the Greek alphabet.” LiveScience
