Can someone confirm this latin sentence

Due to my almost non existent knowledge in latin I would really enjoy if someone can confirm for me the english translation of the following phrase:Non crescit,sed et senescit. The idea was the meaning to be: It doesn't grow,but it grows old(ages). There is a similar latin sentence: "Crescit, sed non benescit". My version was intended to be an auto-ironic cersion of the above mentioned.

@Bloodprof,
why the 'et' ? Sed already sets up the contrast

@AugustineBrother,
Et is sometimes used, especially after sed, in the same sense as etiam, that
is to say, for emphasis.
