    chloroplasts - energy harvest vacuoles - storage cytoplasm - holds organelles cell walls - maintains cell shape mitochondria - produces ATP

    Cell walls maintains the shape of the cell which enables them to grow tall. Its like animals with bones acting as cell wall

    The question here is not with dividing, you can divide countless of times yet the plant does not grow tall because it has many cells, but with cell wall, it has the support that it needs to be able to "straighten" up and grow tall

    yes... meristematic cells in the growth regions divide and redivide that help the growth in height and also the girth of the plant.. the cytoplasm of meristematic cells is special.. that has a capacity to divide continuously ...!!
