Please note

The simulation needs a Java-Plugin (1.3.x) installed for your internet browser. If you do not already have one installed, the browser will prompt you to download the Plugin from “Sun”, who is the inventor of Java. Please download the JRE (=Java runtime environment) into a directory on your computer (e.g. “c:\temp”), execute the downloaded file for installation on your system (double-click on the file). Afterwards you will be able to reload the simulation page. Maybe you will have to restart your browser to succeed.

Description of the simulation

The simulation works very much like the tree&parsley version, it just sprouts 2 times per step. The first sprouting occurs on the left side after 75% of the length of a tep are finnished, the second sprouting occurs to the right side at the end of each step.

Experiments

  • Tese the results of changing the angles, the depth and the shortening-factors. Interprete the results.
