Apical Meristem

Meristems are areas in plants where mitosis occurs, and due to this cell division, it is also where growth occurs. Lateral meristems can be found at the tip of lateral growths in the plant while the apical meristems responsible for vertical growth can be found at the root and shoot (apex) tips.
