The '''Growth Charm''' is a [[charm]] which causes the target to become larger. During his [[Ordinary Wizarding Level|O.W.L.]] exam for [[Charms (class)|Charms]] in [[1996]], [[Harry Potter]] confused this spell's incantation for that of the [[Colour Change Charm]], causing his test rat to swell to the size of a [[badger]] when he was supposed to have turned it orange. This makes it quite likely that the Growth Charm and the Colour-Changing Charm have similar incantations, as [[Harry]] mixed them up. It may be [[Engorgio]].
