I think you should just take good care of it and wait patiently until it grows. Feed it the right amount or els it will die of being too full. Give it the time it needs and have a wonderful life with your pet turtle!

If you want speed, you bought the wrong pet.

If you try to make your turtle grow faster than normal, you could make it very sick. It needs time to develop just like any other animal.

Think about human kids. What if a parent said, I don't want to wait 16-20 years until this kid reaches maturity. How can I make it grow faster? Can you imagine what would happen to that child? The same sort of thing would happen to a turtle that was fed too much, for example, or fed the wrong things just because it would get bigger faster.

Enjoy the animal you have. If you need a bigger one for some reason, find a good home for the one you have, and get one the size you want.
