How to use "Grows" in context?

There are many things that grow. Trees grow, flowers bloom, and weeds proliferate. But what exactly is growing, and why do some things grow faster than others? Growth is the term used to describe any increase in size or magnitude. There are several things that can contribute to growth, including environmental stimuli (sun, rainfall, etc.), chemical stimulators (in the form of fertilizers or hormones), and genetic instructions. Growth proceeds at a steady pace until something forces it to stop. For plants and mushrooms, this can be due to a lack of resources, competition from other organisms, or predation.
