|Wilma systems is one of the most compact and convenient systems in the world. This incredible unit is basically your assistant in the garden. These clever systems ensure you can grow great plants with minimum fuss.
These systems can used both indoors and outdoors. We prefer to use them on a verandah or semi-outdoor area. If you've got an outdoor living area, Wilma might just be what you are looking for instead of a Veggie patch.
Wilma pots are essentially a re-circulating hydroponic system but they are able to be used with a variety of growing media; including soil, clay pebbles, coco, and rockwool. However, we always recommend using the Wilma Systems with clay pebbles as this will provide extra aeration at the root zone for boosted growth and simplifies the set-up and use of these systems.
These systems are the ideal ‘stepping stone’ from hand-watered soil gardening to automated gardening using active hydroponic growing methods.
When using a timer with these systems (not included) you have the freedom of setting feeding schedules which reduces the maintenance requirements of looking after your plants.
There are also many advantages to using a timer for little but often feeding over hand watering once a day. A ‘little but often’ schedule ensures your plants have a constant supply of the water and nutrients they need without running the risk of overwatering / overfeeding.
These small Wilma Systems have a reservoir volume of 50 litres and the tray measures 75cm x 75cm.The pots are fully interchangeable as the tray is a standard size so you can replant hassle-free without the need to buy another system.
The complete Wilma kit contains a tank, tray, pots, pump, delivery system, flood drippers, arrow drippers, and full instructions for set up.
Key features of the small Wilma System include:
Ideal for use in 1m x 1m grow tents or semi-outdoor gardens.
Flood and arrow drippers to suit all growing needs
Versatile and can be used with virtually all growing media
Benefits of automated feeding combined with the simplicity of growing in pots
Interchangeable pot sizes for effortless replanting
Wilma Systems are the perfect stepping stone from soil to hydro and great for reducing the burden / maintenance of hand watering your plants daily.
The timer system allows plants to be fed little and often which is shown to be an effective way to boost growth and increase overall yield. We recommend using Wilma Systems with clay pebbles for ease of use and best results.
