Aerobic respiration occurs in the mitochondria and requires oxygen. Plant cells do not have mitochondria and therefore cannot respire using aerobic respiration. 

Anaerobic respiration occurs in the cytoplasm, therefore plants do experience anaerobic respiration. They convert glucose into 3c (3 carbon) pyruvate through glycolysis. 3c pyruvate is then converted into ethanol + carbon dioxide through fermentation.
