Totipotent is when stem cell have the ability to develop into any kind of differentiated cell because all their genes are inactive. For example, an embryonic stem cell is a totipotent cell.

A pluriponent cell has the ability to develop into many different types of differentiated cell but not all of them, and this is because some of their genes have been activated. An example are stem cells from bone marrow.

hope this helps
