Is there a way I can increase the vertical size of 4 subplots that are in a column? If I have 1 X variable and 4 Y:
x=1:10;
y1=x.^0.5;
y2=x;
y3=x.^2;
y4=x.^3;
subplot(4,1,1);
plot(x,y1);
subplot(4,1,2);
plot(x,y2);
etc
What can I do to make these plots just as spaced out but larger vertically?

Wouldn't that be the same (or nearly so) as
subplot(2,1,1)
etc., ...?
You can always play with the 'position' property of the axis to adjust as you wish. I've done things like create a 3x3 grid then delete four to leave five with the one centered in the middle to save a little in creating the ones where wanted. Perhaps if you consider the end effect you're looking for something along that line would be more direct...

Do you just want to make the figure taller?
x=1:10;
y1=x.^0.5;
y2=x;
y3=x.^2;
y4=x.^3;
figure1=figure('Position', [100, 100, 1024, 1200]);
subplot(4,1,1);
plot(x,y1);
subplot(4,1,2);
plot(x,y2);
subplot(4,1,3);
plot(x,y3);
subplot(4,1,4);
plot(x,y4);

x=1:10;
y1=x.^0.5;
y2=x;
y3=x.^2;
y4=x.^3;
sp_hand1 = subplot(4,1,1);
plot(x,y1);
sp_hand2 = subplot(4,1,2);
plot(x,y2);
pos1 = get(sp_hand1, 'Position') % gives the position of current sub-plot
new_pos1 = pos1 +[0 0 0 0.05]
set(sp_hand1, 'Position',new_pos1 ) % set new position of current sub - plot
you can space them like this, check documentation on
get, set
