What is Wilma Grow Systems? Can I use it as a hydroponic growing system?
The Wilma Grow Systems is an integrated plant growing system that supplies all plants with water and nutrients equally. It consists of a reservoir underneath the pots, which are placed on a tray. After filling the tank, fertiliser is added, and the water is automatically pumped to the plants when connected to the mains. This saves a considerable amount of time and effort, as you do not have to water them by hand one by one. In addition, it ensures that all plants receive the same moisture and nourishment at all times.

 

The Wilma Grow Systems includes two types of drippers, one for hydroponic irrigation, with a faster flow of water (blue), and the fertigation ones, with less flow (black). So, if you want to use it to start a hydroponic crop in an easy way, this is the system for you!

Several options available
There are different types are available for this growing system. The smallest type consists of 8 small pots with a capacity of 1.65 litres each, which makes it very useful for growing cuttings, seedlings, or your kitchen herbs. The larger option consists of 20 pots with a capacity of 6.5 litres each. Therefore, a system can be found for any room, place, or area. In addition, these lightweight sys tems are fairly easy to move, and because they are very stable, can be placed almost anywhere. All models are suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

How do I use it?
The installation of a Wilma Grow Systems is a breeze, as it is delivered as a complete package, including the tank, pots, potting tray, pump, drippers, and water hoses, in any size you wish. All you have to do is add the substrate and plant food of your choice.

 

Installation of a Wilma Grow Systems:

1. Connect the drippers to the thin supply tubes.
2. Connect the thin supply tubes to the feeding tube.
3. Insert the feeding tube into the tray, fit the tube as deep as possible.
4. Connect this feeding to the water outlet of the pump.
5. Install the pump at the bottom of the tray. Tip: when mounting the pump, place the suction cups on the side. This way you gain a few extra centimetres for when you empty the tank using the pump.
6. Place the tray on top of the water tank.
7. Use the red lid to close the tank.
8. Place the pots in the system.

 

After you have completed these steps, the system is ready for use, and you can fill the pots. Then fill the tank with water, adding the necessary fertilisers.

 

Which substrates and plant nutrition are suitable for Wilma Grow Systems?
You can use almost any substrate, from organic substrates like peat or coco coir, to hydroponics substrates like Hydro Rokz. Just add the right drippers for each growing method and you’re ready to go.

Hydro Rokz fits great for hydroponic cultivation.

Once you have your plants and everything prepared, you will need to start adding nutrients (fertilisers) to the water to support optimal plant growth, especially if you are growing hydroponically. For this type of growing in particular, liquid fertilisers are the most suitable. Atami offers all kinds of liquid fertilisers for plants; which one to use depends on the substrate you have chosen.
