If you do the sports activity and the exercise then chances of height increase is there up-to 21. After that however you can find the height reducing over a period of time. It's 19 so you can guess the biological limit for the height is coming closer. You should definitely find the height coming to it's threshold over a period of time. I'd suggest doing the sports activity such as - basketball and cycling. Most likely the basketball helps for the height increase. If the cycling is possible for you then definitely do try for that too and you'd be able to increase the height.

The height increasing time is till you complete your teenage. You can definitely grow tall by cycling or skipping daily. Any exercise that you do should be done at morning for quick response.

The thing that matters is, how you carry yourself and how confident are you about your work and the success in your work. Its good habit of growing taller. But never be disappointed with your height.
