The Large Wilma System combines the ease of growing in pots with the growth-boosting and maintenance-saving benefits of automated feeding.

Their innovative dripper-design bridges the gap between soil/coco and hydroponics, saving time and avoiding overwatering/feeding.

Wilma Systems are comparable to having a personal assistant for your gardening. They combine the simplicity of gardening in pots with the effort-saving benefits of having a timer-based automatic feeding system.

You can use any growing medium with the Wilma System, whether youre a fan of soil, clay pebbles, rockwool, coco, or any other medium for that matter. We recommend using clay pebbles as this ensures plenty of aeration at the root zone and also makes the systems easier to set-up and manage.

Wilma Systems are based on re-circulating hydroponics and utilise a simple dripper system to allow timer-based scheduled feeding. A timer is not included in the kit but we have inexpensive timers (see FAQs below) available which will let you effortlessly set your own feeding schedules.

Wilma Systems are great for automating the process of hand watering your plants daily and theyre also perfect for making the transition from soil to hydroponic gardening. It is worth noting one of the key benefits of switching from hand watering to automatic watering is the growth advantages.

Feeding plants little and often has been shown to be much more effective at growing large, high-yielding plants when compared to hand watering once a day. The timer-based dripper system also dramatically reduces the risk of overwatering/overfeeding that is associated with hand watering plants.

These large Wilma systems have a reservoir volume of 50 litres and the tray measures 75cm x 75cm x 20cm. There are three systems available, one with 6 litre pots, one with 11 litre pots, and one with 18 litre pots. The tray is a standard size so you can interchange between these pot sizes effortlessly without having to purchase another system.

There are also other sizes of Wilma System available, from small to XXL to suit a whole host of growing environments, so check out the other sizes if this large system does not match your needs.

Key features of the large Wilma System include:

  • Ideal for use in 1.2m x 1.2m grow tents / environments
  • Flood and arrow drippers to suit all growing needs
  • Versatile and can be used with virtually all growing media
  • Combines simplicity of pots with benefits of automated feeding
  • Interchangeable pot sizes for effortless replanting

Wilma Systems are a great product that really bridge the gap between hand-watering in soil and the automated feeding associated with hydroponics. They are perfect for those looking to move from soil to hydro and the timer-based drip system ensures you can feed your plants regularly even when youre absent. They are definitely worth a try with clay pebbles and the results tend to be better than hand-watering in soil.

Do I need different trays for the different pot sizes?

It depends on your growing needs. There are different trays available for the different XXL system layouts. A 5 pot, 8 pot, 16 pot, and 20 pot tray are available for use with these systems. You can decide to use however many of these as you like, but only one will be supplied with the complete system. Separate trays are available. Please give us a call if you’d like to purchase more than one size.

Why aren’t the kits supplied with timers?

There are many timers that can be used with the Wilma Systems and each grower will have their own preference (for example some like analogue timers and some prefer digital). As a range of timers can be used the manufacturer has decided to leave this element down to individual choice. If you want a good, inexpensive timer that’ll make setting feeding schedules easy then we recommend the Segmental Timer.

How do I use the flood and arrow drippers?

Two different types of drippers are supplied to accommodate for the versatility of using different growing media with the Wilma Systems. Arrow drippers are more suited to absorbent media such as coco or soil, whereas if you use our recommendation of clay pebbles, the flood drippers are the most effective method of delivering water and nutrients to your plants.

You recommend clay pebbles, why?

Simply because we have found that the Wilma Systems are most effective when using this growing medium. Clay pebbles ease the process of setting up the system (with other mediums a separate nutrient tank may be required) and they give you all the benefits of increased aeration at the root zone.

I’ve been told dripper systems can block or clog easily?

Over time dripper systems can have a tendency to clog or become partially blocked. However, by maintaining a regular cleaning schedule for your system and using a product such as Atami’s ATA Clean you shouldn’t experience any trouble with blocking or clogging. Keeping a clean system will help eliminate these associated issues.
