Choose a Wilma drip irrigation system and experience the flexibility of growing in pots, with the accurate feeding and increased yield benefits of active hydro.
What is the Wilma? The Wilma is an active hydro version of a drip irrigation system. Your plants benefit from the accurate feeding of active hydroponics, combined with the flexibility of growing in pots.
Pots are placed on a tray above a nutrient solution tank. Plants and drippers are placed in the pots with the chosen growing medium – clay, coco, soil or rockwool. Set the irrigation frequency with a timer, which triggers the drippers to automatically feed your plants.
The nutrient solution works its way through the medium and over the roots of your plants, draining into the catchment tank and drawing oxygen into the root zone.
The Wilma offers you the flexibility to be used as an irrigation system with a tank to catch run off or as a fully re-circulating hydro system.
Why the Wilma system produces great results
Frequent feeding means greater uptake of water and nutrients.
Active hydroponics: roots do not rely on the capillary action of the growing medium.
Free draining root zone means no nutrient build up or water-logging.
Why choose the Wilma system?
Bigger yields – your plants take up more water and nutrients than hand watering pots, as they are fed little and often.
More choice – you can grow in soil, coco, clay or rockwool; there is a Wilma dripper for every medium. Grow 4, 8, 9, 10, 16 or 20 plants.
Less hassle - the Wilma is low maintainence. Manage one nutrient solution tank for up to 20 plants and top up every couple of days – far easier than hand watering.
Flexibility - pots in a Wilma are independent of one another; your plants can be moved around under lights or replaced. Use a timer to increase the number of feeds to suit the life stage of your plants.
Reliability - the Wilma has a reliable anti-leak design. The Wilma pots fit snugly into perfectly sized ‘slots’ in the tray, which in turn sits over a reservoir, greatly reducing the chance of leaks in your grow room.
Adaptable - one solution tank is suitable for up to 3 tray options of different pot numbers and sizes.
Practical - external nutrient solution mixing tap to ensure optimum consistency/levels after topping up the reservoir.
