Wilma systems combine the simplicity of gardening in pots with the advantages of timer automated feeding. These clever systems ensure you can grow great plants with minimum fuss.
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 30 litres and the tray measures 60cm x 60cm x 20cm. Both are four-pot systems available with either 6 litre pots or 11 litre pots. These pots are fully interchangeable as the tray is a standard size so you can replant hassle-free without the need to buy another system.
If you’d like a larger system, then we also have medium, large, and XL Wilma Systems available.
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:
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.
