In the light of increasing evidence that plant growth and development depend on signals perceived in distinct cell types where hormonal inputs are transformed into orchestrated responses triggering a plethora of physiological processes, we reflect on the case of ethylene signaling. Experimental approaches to address cell type-specificity of the ethylene response are discussed and future challenges in ethylene signaling studies are outlined.
