How to improve my Wilma system?

As the title states, how you think I could improve my Wilma system plans? I think yield is my number one priority and I'm new to hydro systems.

 

I have planning getting a new Wilma system, either XXL 9x18L or XXL 5x25L. Area will be ~150x150x200 and light 600W or even 1000W if suggested. I would prefer 600W myself.

 

So the question is: should I pick 9x18 or 5x25?

 

I know people have a lot of opinions but please reason yours with pros and cons! I would like to know my possible bottlenecks in both cases. I have heard that 9x18 would be faster to harvest (because of smaller size of plants) for example. I have also heard that 25 liters would be a way too much per pot but as a person who prefers few bigger plants instead of many smaller ones the decision is still hard to make.

 

Thanks dudes!

More light if you want bigger yields. Setup nutes etc come last.

You think even 1000W wouldn't be enough to cover that area? I have always heard about adding light but is there any cap after it won't effect anymore on yield?

600 isn't enough mate they have a 3.5x3.5 footprint and your space is 5x5 I'd definitely use the 1000watt. Or 2 600 watts together maybe if your yet to buy.

I would go with 2 x 600s in that area, for better coverage than a single 1000watter.  1 x 600 wouldn't be enough, no way.

For your Wilma, id cut holes in the top and let the roots go into the res , like dwc, with additional airstones and a chiller.

Have a look at heath Robinsons perpetual harvest video on yootoob.
