Virtual reality technique is widely used in pervasive computing. Plant model is a hotspot study issue in this area. It has been generally recognized that 3D plant model based on growth can make the morphologies of plants lifelike. The paper has put forward a plant growing model based on evolvement of multi-agent system. With multi-agent system, plant growing process can be really simulated. Usually, a plant has many growth points which are growing synchronously. Grow points grow out branches and leaves, and germinate new grow points. Grow points are independent in behavior and adaptable to circumstance, they compete and co-operate with each other, and finally form the shape of plant. So it is nature to employ an agent to simulate behavior of growth point, and employ a multi-agent system to simulate behavior of plant growth system.
