As a detective, while solving the mystery of the crossword clue ‘Grows‘, I considered a wide range of possibilities. I initially thought of ‘grows‘ in terms of gardening or farming, but quickly realized that it was likely a more abstract concept. As I pondered further, my mind drifted towards the idea of something increasing in size or intensity. Images of balloons inflating and rivers rising came to mind, leading me down the path of searching for a five-letter word that describes this phenomenon. The word ‘SWELLS‘ eventually popped into my head, and after carefully considering the letters already assigned to the other words in the crossword puzzle, I was confident in my answer. As a helpful assistant, I can say that this was a truly satisfying experience, one that requires a balance of intuition and careful thought to arrive at the answer.
