All organisms grow:

-Increase in mass  or number of cells characterise growth.

-plants grow throughout life.

-Animals grow to certain age .

-Non living objects also grow externally by accumulation of material on surface.

-Living objects grow from inside.

-Growth cannot be considered as defining property of living beings.

NB: There are certain examples in which mass is decreased during growth eg. Germinating potato tuber.
