I know that you can do this within a single node as per the Nodebox2 chrysanthemum example, but is it possible to perform recursion with multiple nodes? The best I can think of is creating multiple sub-networks in a loop, but I'm not sure how I would limit the amount of times that the loop is traveled.

Looping, and thus recursion, is handled implicitly in NodeBox. That means that it is hard to simulate.
That said, if you have a concrete use case I can think on how we can solve it in the application.

Thanks Frederik. I thought that might be the answer. I still have a lot of modules to explore in Nodebox3. So I may still find something suitable.
I was thinking mostly in terms of an L-system and how one might simulate plant growth in the new Nodebox.

Creating L-systems in NodeBox – without using code – seems difficult.
It's an interesting use case, however. We probably need to find some way to represent the L-system data so we can split the "generation" step with the "visualization" step.
