Maybe: Human growth hormone (hgh) is particularly released during delta phase of sleep, the deepest sleep level. Yet at you sex and age, you probably have completed physical growth and increasing sleep time will not further effect growth. Remember, it is not necessarily total sleep time but more so the quality and level of delta sleep levels that may be at play.

Sleep: If you are 56 years old - the amount you sleep will not help you grow any taller. Our height is largely determined by genetics. However, reaching potential is depending on things like getting proper vitamins and minerals, sleeping adequately, staying physically active ect. Our body does a lot of it's healing & growing while we are sleeping.
