The tissue composed of actively dividing cells in plants are called meristematic tissues.


There are two types of meristematic tissues. The first is the root/shoot apical meristem found on the root/shoot apex which is responsible for the primary growth (lengthening) of plants, and the lateral meristem responsible for the secodary growth of plants responsible for the secondary growth or growth in girth of plants.
