Where Does The Phellogen Or The Cork Cambium Develop?

Cork cambium or phellogen is a secondary meristematic tissue seen in the epidermis of most vascular plants. It is responsible for the development of periderm.

The phellogen or the cork cambium typically develops in the cortex region. Likewise, the phellem forms the outer layer of dead cells and the phelloderm forms the inside of the cork cambium comprising living cells. All three combine together to form the periderm.
