Will do 

 

Just noticed you say the roots are still in the pots, I've never used a wilma so unsure if they progress into the res?

If not then 3 feeds a day might be too much, try once lights on then again a couple of hours before lights off, see if there's any difference.

Res temps won't be quite so critical if the roots aren't submerged in there all the time.

The roots do eventually progress a bit into the res but not til they're really mature

Always best feeding less and if the plants look hungry up the ec a bit. I learnt that in my first grow or two in the Wilma system. I try and keep it around 1.0 ec but when well into flower I gradually raise it to around 1.6/1.8 and then slowly lower it towards the end. 
 

it can all depend on the phenos too, one might be hungry whereas the other might be burning etc. 
 

I have the pump on a timer going 15mins every 2 hours during lights on. Always done it this way from start to finish, never had any problems with overwatering as the clay balls/pebbles don’t really retain moisture.

 

Oh and if the roots eventually grow down into the res, best getting an air stone or two as the roots submerged in water needs oxygen 

 

Good luck buddy
