Yes, I agree with this statement. Cork cambium (also called phellogen) cuts off cells both on its outer side and inner side. The cells cut off on the outer side form the cork (also called phellem ) and cells cut off on the inner side form the secondary cortex(also called phelloderm). The cells of the cork are dead while those of the secondary cortex is alive. Phelloderm, phellogen, and phellem are collectively known as periderm.Answered by Pragya Singh | 1 year ago
