Thank you Harold for sharing your experiences.

Ron, daily watering of the plant pertains to my growing conditions in
Honolulu.  Growing outdoors there, this plant gets ample air-movement 24-7,
strong solar energy all day and warm night temperatures in summer (above
22°C).  All these elements conspire to dry out my media quickly enough so
that daily water is appropriate.  As a houseplant it gets watered less often
depending on what how much sun and warmth there is.

To compare with Ron's climate, most of Honolulu (below 150m elevation) is
too warm to grow Worsleya well, whereas Ron grows 'wuzzies' to perfection in
his.  Surely Ron's climate is at least 5°C cooler on average at night than
night-time in Honolulu.
