Well, it can be a little late for you, but i have been swimming since before 1.grade and i belive that can have a effect on MY height, because my mama is a "peewee" and i think that i should not really be this high(hehehe).
But it is never to late pick up swimming.

I believe stretching and diet are your best bet, but what do I know, I'm only 6'3". And live a clean lifestyle

Can you be a bit more specific as to what type of diet will help?

Height is almost certainly pure genetics. There is some evidence that gymnastics can decrease your growth because it can damage the bones, but aside from that, you can't effect it. Growth is a complex hormonal process. Exercise has nothing to do with it.

Thing there effect height.

1. Genetics
2. Diet before the age of 6 (a good balanced diet increase height. Has little or no effect after early childhood)
3. Heavy weight exercises before the age of 16 can possible limit growth.

I'm short due to my genetics. I did try hanging from a monkey bar 15 mins everyday and I grew about an inch in a month. 
Not the best but it helped
Try at your own risk... Not as easy as it sounds.

Yoga. It didn't make me taller, but it improved my posture so I look taller.
