Large Hydroponic Drip System | Wilma XXL 8 | 115cm X 115cm
The Wilma hydroponic grow system is an excellent choice for those who are serious about growing their own plants. Its versatility is one of its most significant benefits. It allows you to grow your plants in a variety of mediums such as clay pebbles, rockwool, coco, or soil giving you the freedom to choose the medium that works best for you and your plants. Additionally, this system is ideal for those looking to make the transition from hand-watering pot style growing to a fully automated dripper system. The Wilma system is known for delivering increased yields, which is a significant advantage for those who are serious about growing their own plants.
The Wilma system works by using a pump to deliver the nutrient solution through the drippers into the tops of each pot. This solution then circulates around the root zone of the plants, while any excess solution drains through the medium and back into the reservoir. The excess solution is then re-circulated and dripped back into the pots at the next scheduled feed. This ensures that the plants always have access to the necessary nutrients while also preventing any waste of the solution.
The Wilma dripper system uses a timer to control when your plants are fed. This allows you to set the number of feeds per 24hour cycle, depending on the medium you are using and the growth stage of your plants. For example, young plants that are growing in clay pebbles may only require 1-3 feeds per day, while more mature or flowering plants may require up to 6+ feeds per day. This flexability allows you to tailor the system to the specific needs of your plants.
The Wilma hydroponic dripper system is also designed with a low profile, which means 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. This is especially beneficial for those who have limited space to work with, as it allows you to maximize your growing area.
In addition to its versatility and low profile design, the Wilma system also comers with both Flood Drippers and Arrow Drippers. These drippers are designed for different mediums and 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.
In conclusion, the Wilma hydroponic grow system is a versatile, low profile and efficient solution
