Draw a neat labelled diagram of a plant and mark the following meristems:a  Apical meristemb Lateral meristemc Intercalary meristem

  • The apical meristem, or growing tip, is a completely undifferentiated meristematic tissue found in the buds and growing tips of roots in plants.
  • Its main function is to begin growth of new cells in young seedlings at the tips of roots and shoots (forming buds, among other things).
  • Specifically, an active apical meristem lays down a growing root or shoot behind itself, pushing itself forward.
