Broccoli plant 3d model

Good day to everyone! I'm quite new on this forum.

I need to make a 3d-model of Broccoli vegetable, just like this:

The main problem is to make broccoli-flowers by geometry. No texture, no displacement needed.

I know there's a good plugin like Grow-FX, but maybe there's another way to make it? Maybe just an idea... I'm quite familiar with polygons.

Is anyone could help me?

Thanks a lot and sorry for my English.

Maybe you can try to create the all shape and then emit particles(disable the speed) on that shape wich represent where the "broccoli-flowers" are. Once you have particles in the shape you just have to instance a mesh already created of a flower. You will see the flowers on the position of your particles (for this exemple you would probably need to emit a lot of particles)

If you can try houdini use a scatter node in the shape then you will have a really nice control on how to place these flowers.

I hope you understood something

You could try going the fractal modeling way.

I've seen many fractal objects that look pretty much like broccoli.
