In brief: Depends

Growing taller requires open growth centers in the long bones.
These usually close between 17-18 in males & 15-16 in females. An x-ray of your wrist/hand can identify growth centers.If the x-ray shows open centers, more growth is possible, if not, you are done.

In brief: Age of puberty

Most males stop growing taller by around age 18 and for most girls it is around 16 to 17 years old.
However, this varies – especially if the person entered puberty late.
