Yes, sub optimal growing conditions and the duckweed will have a bad effect
on many plants that like light.
You reduce the ability of the plant to make food basically after going
along at full bore.

Some plants are not as picky, but my Blyxa flowered most of the time, no
melt of die back. 

If it occurs as stated, why are my plants fine after 2-3 years and 1 year
of flowering(continuously)?
Are mine semi annual? 
Sort of annual?

This maybe true for many Aponogetons, but less so for this plant.
Even the Apono's are good if kept cool, my Blyxa wasn't kept cool though,
it was hot every summer.
