HELP WITH WILMA DRIP FEED SYSTEM PLEASE !

Hello again guys !!!

Just been out and bought a Wilma 4 pot system

Just need some help on how to use it do i need it on a timer if so on what times or does the pump do it itself on a schedule ??

if i had nutes to the 30 liter tank with the correct ph how do i water them without the nutes by hand or shall i just use a small amounts of nutes in the tank and let it do its thing??

just dont want to over feed or give them to put fluids

thanks in advance

I have done a few Wilma 4 pot grows.

Am enjoying the results so much I purchased a second system !

I get my seedlings showing roots from their little root root cube and then transplant into my very well rinsed n cleaned clay pebbles.

Water pumps are on 24/7, others recommend a 15min burst every 3h. But I personally find 24/7 works with no difficulties.

I use Canna start for the first couple of weeks then move onto full strength Vegetative growth nutes thereafter.

My current diary and the last few diaries in my archives have followed this method.

Good luck ! :)

@@sw-home-growny I was not having a dig at you, hydro requires a lot of research and planning otherwise it can go tits up just like that and the crop can be finished. Do you have a cool enough room to keep the wilma at the temps required?

I second the 24/7 method, some people like the 15 min bursts as they say when the pumps turn off, it draws oxygen into the root system, but as long as you have proper air stones inside the res, the nutrient solution will always be oxygenated enough.

Hi mate I have my water pump system on a timer which goes on for 15 minutes every hour. Personally I think hydro systems are pretty easy as long as you're willing to fork out the money for the right toys that you need. chemical wand , pH test kit, etc. I have only ever done hydro system the results are always great and it seems to work for me. Have fun let us know how you going?

24/7 if using clay pebbles .

personally i would use coco and feed every 2-4 hours long enough to achieve a good amount of run off while the lights are on . starting every 4 hours at beginning of vegging and working up to every 2 hours at around half way through flowering

I go 15mins every 3hrs lights on and one in the middle of lights off.

Never seen the need for running 24/7 as the rootball is still full of water even 3-4 days after cropping and switching it all off.

:yep:
