The Golden Angle

As a growing plant rotates, it may demonstrate the Golden Angle in it's leaf or flower patterns. The Golden Ratio decimal is 0.618, which equals 222.5 degrees on a circle. The opposing angle is 137.5 degrees, which is known as the Golden Angle. This is the angle of rotation for flower petals, leaves, and other plant patterns. If a plant is demonstrating the golden angle, then there will be 137.5 degrees between each successive leaf as the plant continues to grow.
