Honestly I'm not sure that I understand your question. Turtles grow the same way any other living thing grows... taking in nutrients and converting them to energy (calories) which prompts growth. Obviously this is the short simplified version... but it is the same with all living things. We all grow the same way.

How big will a pet turtle get?

Depends on the species. Red eared sliders can grow to about a foot and other sliders can grow a simular size. Many painted turtles will grow about nine inches (however southern painted turtles usually stay slightly smaller). Sea turtles (which are not really available in the pet trade), most species of snapping turtles, and most species of tortoises grow many feet long. Unlike mammals, male turtles stay smaller than female turtles so they generally make better pets. The smaller the turtle the less space, time changing tanks, food, etc. it consumes. Musk turtles, male map turtles, and male painted turtles tend to be the smaller adult turtles.
