What is the difference between rib and plate meristems since both of them divide anticlinally?

Please find below the solution to the asked query

Rib meristem is a type of meristem in which cells divide along long axis in only one plane to form columns or rows of cells. It helps to increase the length of an organ. E.g, formation of filaments in algae.

Plate meristem is a type of meristem in which cells divide in two planes. It helps to increase the area of organ. E.g, formation of leaf.

Hope this information will clear your doubts about the topic.
