I'd like to ask the difference between "grow by age" and "grow with age". Which one is correct? If it's both correct, then what difference do they make?

Thank you!

I believe grow by age is the action of having one's age increase; as in the number of days/months/days is increasing.

Meanwhile grow with age is having some other characteristic (presumably size/maturity) increase as the age progresses.
