Mine took awhile to acclimate and start growing, but after that I would say at least a half inch in diameter a month. When the polyps stop extending that means it's going to shed. They will generally stay closed for about a week than it will open up bigger and better than before.

Toadstools are one of the larger leathers, but its eventual size and time it takes to mature depends on its sex and environment. I think a female toadstool grows 5 times as large as a male and matures in 10 years maybe? And a male matures in 5 years or so? The female can be a couple feet wide where the male the size of a softball.
These corals grow quicker in healthy tanks with strong lighting. They derive their food via photosynthetic algae. They can move slightly and leave behind a bit of their stalk in order to multiply, actually – I think I have one in the process of this in one of my tanks, if I remember this evening I will take a picture.
I couldn’t agree with the statement of ½ inch per month, but I couldn’t disagree either. I would speculate that a smaller coral could display such growth and then slow as it matures.
