Wilma set up

Post by Smelierjoint »

Hello all, been looking deeper into the abyss of growing and might do a basic hydro set up.
More to take the daily chore away from watering ect. :rage:

Had a little look around see whats on the market and found wilma kits, some different set ups available and not that expensive if its for the long term.

After a bit of user info and knowledge if anyone has a set up please.

I have two tents and want to veg and flower, can this be done with this kind of set up moving them over when ready?

Got a few other dafty questions around this, as I don't want to get it set it up and fk it up and waste time and money. And go back to what I was doing.
I believe if ur doing it do it to the best you can like.


:thanks:
Thanks yall. Sj.

I use a small Wilma 60x60 with 11 litre pots.
I've got a diary on here.
TT fast lap.
I got nearly 17oz off 4 auto's.
You just need to need to modify them a bit.
Basically drill more holes.

I think the smallest is 60x60 so you'd be ok for flower tent.
Put a couple of airstones in and run it like a Brummie bubbler.
I was in 120x120 tent.
I would think four plants in your space maybe a bit much.
I've downsized to 80cm tents now and plan on running two plants in it.
What lights are you using?

Ish 100br x 2 for flower and ish 75 veg, coco ill use as new to hydro and proper growing. I know which ever decision i make some modifications are needed like.
Not going to use the full pots probably half due to space like. But thats the kits they sell.

I do want to be able to move one into the other tent and keep that cycle going. That's most important.

I've got some vegging at the moment just hand watering.
It's when the roots come through the pots. That's when you use the Wilma.

Do the roots sit in the fluid in the container then and not supplied by the drippers any longer. Any pics you can chuck up tt mate 👍

Roots grow into tank and drippers left on.
I'm not running the Wilma at the moment.
I'll stick some pictures tomorrow.
All you need is an air pump and two stones a 6mm drill bit and good to go.
Everything else is in the kit.

Had a look into this more than I wanted to. Haha its very interesting. Does anyone swere by a particular set up?

For me its taking the back out of feeding. Currently 2wice a day. It will be more once the prop tent is up running.
So ploughed through the net and again the Chinese pop up.
On teebay thers a wifi irragation feeder with two separate pumps and a bit of kit ect.

This would be ideal for my situation however I've read that dippers block and things go wrong. The beauty of this is I can put the inlet onto any jug bottle container and feed away.

Anyone used such a thing wifi.

About 40 all in and add a few quid for proper drippers hose ect.
