If they cease to divide then they will not qualify for the term "meristem" .They may undergo a period of dormancy depending upon the seasonal changes in the climate .But they retain their potential to divide

If mediated cease to divide then the plant will not grow any more. The growth of the plant is stopped. This happens during the differentiation into permanent tissues when they attain specific function. This also occurs during unfavourable condition.
