what is meant by acropetal and basipetal order?

Acropetal order (a term which is the modified form of racemose inflorescence) is the arrangement of plant flowers on the plant’s pedicel in the manner in which the new flowers and new buds are at the apex whereas the relatively older flowers are placed at the base. Vice-versa, the term ‘basipetal order’ is a modified form of the cymose inflorescence. Here, new flowers are placed at the bottom and the relatively older flowers are placed at the top.
