Wilma systems

Hi,

 

I've got a 4 pot Wilma system on the way to use in a small space (1m x 1m 1.5m(h)) with a 250w hps/mh. Plannong to Scrog Pure Ak. I have never tried hydro before. Done a soil grow a long time ago. Any hints, tips, thoughts or suggestions appreciated.

 

Cheers.

What you going with clay balls or coco mate? I have used it in the past with coco. You may want to modify the wilma so you can drain it if you plan on doing a scog. You need to take the plant off the system and imagine it will be impossible if you got the plant running through a scrog net.

Clay balls unless there is a reason not to. When do you need to take the plant off the system, must have missed that bit?

I refill through the red cap bit.....using another pump to empty the old feed out, through the same red capped hole. No need to move plants off.

Get a EC meter (bluelab are good) and watch out for increased EC from week 5 onwards

preferably use a clone so they all the same hight and feed the same

Currently doing a Wilma 8 pot with 90% growmax 1cm cubes with a top and bottom dress of clay. So far so good, 3 x 15 min feeds a day and currently 4 days into flip. Cant moan....yet, but they are doing great. Took a little longer to settle into the rockwool than id hoped, but soon as they settled in they set off on their jollies.

 

BUT...this is a strain ive not tried before as its a concoction of my own, so im doubly looking forward to results on a new system / medium / strain.

 

I liked the idea of the growmax cubes as they squish to fuck all at the end of a run, and its less shit to get rid off.

Hi Mike, how's the grow going? how do you find working with the growmax cubes and clay? I've started my own grow using a Wilma, clay pebbles and germinating in rockwool, same as you

 

@Some call me Tim how did the grow turn out?

I've recently started with a Wilma. Couldn't believe how easy it was to set up. Apart from the timer I had that didn't seem to work. Just going in at moment and manually turning on pump 3 times a day.
