vagh loch wej 3/5
loS loch jav 6/4

And for "grow" as in "grow a mustache," make use of nargh, as in nargh lochwIj "I'm growing a mustache." To indicate that you're doing it on purpose, you could say nargh lochwIj 'e' vIchaw' "I'm letting my mustache grow" or something similar. (QelIS boqHarmeyAlice's Adventures in Wonderland in Klingon, p. 235)
