Wilma System

I am going on holiday in July for 1 week. I hand water my plants each day. Will I be ok to use a Wilma system whilst I’m away?

As long as your res is big enough, I don't see why not.

 

edit. Just remembered a Wilma doesn't have seperate res. I'd estimate the amount your plants are using and make sure the m lower tray has enough water. Do you have a trusted mate who could top it up?

it depends how far are you

and if you have 50l or 70l tank

 

if you up to week 4 flowering you could get away with 7 days in 70l tray

also to add

 

if you over week 4 than you will have problems with EC if not topping up water -your EC will go up from 1.8 to 2.4 easy over 4 days

 

also it depends what substrate you going ,i am using 60/40 mix but if in pure pebbles you might struggle if you run out of water-2 days and its over  =your pump can go on empty which isn't the best either

Ive got a trusted family member who’ll top it up. I’m growing in coco. Should I make the top up solution at 1/4 strength?
