We consider some generalizations of the germ-grain growing model studied by Daley, Mallows and Shepp (2000). In this model, a realization of a Poisson process on a line with points X-i is fixed. At time zero, simultaneously at each Xi, a circle (grain) starts growing at the same speed. It grows until it touches another grain, and then it stops, The question is whether the point zero is eventually covered by some circle. In our note we expand this model in the following three directions. We study: a one-sided growth model with a fixed number of circles; a grain-growth model on a regular tree; and a grain-growth model on a line with non-Poisson distributed centres of the circles.
