The Wilma is one of the most versatile hydroponic grow systems currently available, utilising a pot system, meaning you can grow in any medium, clay pebbles, rockwool, coco or soil. They are also an ideal choice for those wanting to make the move from hand watering pot style growing in coco or soil, to a fully automated dripper system along with the increased yields hydroponic systems are known for delivering.
The Wilma works by uses a pump to deliver the nutrient solution through the drippers into the tops of each pot, this then circulates around the root zone while any excess drains through the medium, back into the reservoir and is then re-circulated to drip back into the pots at the next scheduled feed.
To control when your plants are fed, the Wilma dripper system uses a timer that allows you to set the number of feeds per 24 hour cycle and depending on the medium used, for young plants it can be 1-3 times per day and up to 6+ times a day for more mature or flowering plants.
The Wilma hydroponic dripper system has also been specifically designed with a low profile, meaning that it takes up minimal vertical space leaving more room to fill out your grow space with plants, fruits and flowers, rather than bulky hydroponics equipment.
The system also comes with both Flood Drippers and Arrow Drippers, which should be used as follows:
Flood Drippers – Clay Pebbles When growing in clay pebbles, the Flood Drippers should be used, for young plants, the feeding schedule should be set to around 1-3 times a day, as the plants grow, this should be increased to around 6 times per day. An imperium controller can also be used as the plant matures to set up shorter, but more frequent feeds as this will help maximize oxygenation & nutrient solution uptake.
Arrow Drippers – Rockwool For Rockwool, use the Arrow Drippers, initially for young plants & seedlings use a rate of 2 feeds per day, this should then be increased as the plants grow to a maximum of 5 feeds per 24 hours. Like when growing in Clay Pebbles, an imperium controller can be used for shorter, more frequent feeds to maximize oxygenation & nutrient solution uptake.
Arrow Drippers – Soil & Coco For Soil or Coco, the Arrow Drippers should be used, as these mediums hold the nutrient solution, young plants should only be fed once a day, as they grow, the feed should be increased as and when needed, with mature and flowering plants requiring around 5 feeds per 24 hours. And as with Rockwool & Clay Pebbles, an imperium controller can be used for shorter, more frequent feeds to maximize oxygenation & nutrient solution uptake.
