Your results are looking good!

So far, I see that one branch of your plant generates two more branches, then
etc. Regarding plants and trees, the mathematical Fibonacci Series seem to be at
play. As far as I understand it, one branch produces three(?) succeeding
branches along its stem, in a kind of 120-deg spiral pattern. Once I became of
aware of the Fibonacci stuff, I began looking at plants in more detail... and
sure enough, I keep seeing that '3-branch' pattern over and over again.

I don't know much about L-systems at all, but I assume that it can be extended
from two to three 'off-shoot' branches? That would make your plants much more
