THE PROCESS OF GROWTH IN PLANTS
Cells elongate & compact
This result of absorbing water into the cell byosmosis.
Vacuoles increase in size.
Small vacuoles fuse to form large central vac.ZONE OF ELONGATION
Cells begin to differ from each other.
Cells differentiate into permanent tissue suchas parenchyma, stoma, guard cell, phloem,xylem, mesophyly cell, cortex ,epidermis etcZONE OFDIFFERENTIATION
Increase in the number of cells by mitosis.Eg: Apical merestem (shoot & root)
The cell are small & arrange closely
The cell have large nucleus & thin cell wall
The cell have no vacuole & surrounded bycompact cytoplasm.ZONE OF DIVISION
