Re: [APD] Fwd: Re: Rotala rotundifolia

All light bulbs get steadily darker as they get older.
Non-phosphor LEDs might be an exception. But certainly all
incandescents, fluorescents, and sealed arc bulbs like MHs.

Luckily, they tend to burn out before they lose mroe than
about 10%-25% of their output. (IF you call that luck ;-) )
