Special types of cells that have the ability to divide continuously forms the meristematic tissue. This tissue is found in all the growing parts of a plant where growth in length and thickness of a plant occurs. Depending on its location in the plant body, it is of three types:

Apical meristem: Helps to increase the length of root and stem in both dicots and monocots.

Lateral meristem: Helps to increase the girth of the stem in dicots. 

Intercalary meristem: Helps to increase the length of the stem in monocots.
