The review is dedicated to the role of cell elongation in plant growth and morphogenesis. The ratios of cell division to elongation, cell competence for the initiation of elongation, main features of the metabolism of elongating cells, and physiological processes realizing elongation have been considered on the examples of seed germination and growth of roots, stems, and leaves. A special attention was paid to the vacuole as a specific feature of plant cells, pathways of its formation, and its role in maintenance of ion and water homeostasis in the elongating cell. The plant can modify its morphology according to changes in the environmental conditions via cell elongation.
