    The root cap protects and covers the apical meristems, which stimulate lateral growth of the plant’s roots! The apical meristems generate new cells that replace the ones sloughed off the root cap. In addition, there are apical meristems in the shoots, i.e., the little buds which form leaves or branches off the main stem.
