Nutriculture Wilma Drip Irrigation Kit - Wide Extra Large | 8 x 18L Pot | w/ 180L Tank
Ideal for use in 2.4m x 1.2m Grow Tent
The Wilma is one of the most versatile hydroponic grow systems currently available, utilising a pot system, meaning you can grow in any medium, clay pebbles, rockwool, coco or soil. They are also an ideal choice for those wanting to make the move from hand watering pot style growing in coco or soil, to a fully automated dripper system along with the increased yields hydroponic systems are known for delivering.
The Wilma works by uses a pump to deliver the nutrient solution through the drippers into the tops of each pot, this then circulates around the root zone while any excess drains through the medium, back into the reservoir and is then re-circulated to drip back into the pots at the next scheduled feed.
To control when your plants are fed, the Wilma dripper system uses a timer that allows you to set the number of feeds per 24 hour cycle and depending on the medium used, for young plants it can be 1-3 times per day and up to 6+ times a day for more mature or flowering plants.
The Wilma hydroponic dripper system has also been specifically designed with a low profile, meaning that it takes up minimal vertical space leaving more room to fill out your grow space with plants, fruits and flowers, rather than bulky hydroponics equipment.
The system also comes with both Flood Drippers and Arrow Drippers, which should be used as follows:
Flood Drippers – Clay Pebbles When growing in clay pebbles, the Flood Drippers should be used, for young plants, the feeding schedule should be set to around 1-3 times a day, as the plants grow, this should be increased to around 6 times per day. An imperium controller can also be used as the plant matures to set up shorter, but more frequent feeds as this will help maximize oxygenation & nutrient solution uptake.
Arrow Drippers – Rockwool For Rockwool, use the Arrow Drippers, initially for young plants & seedlings use a rate of 2 feeds per day, this should then be increased as the plants grow to a maximum of 5 feeds per 24 hours. Like when growing in Clay Pebbles, an imperium controller can be used for shorter, more frequent feeds to maximize oxygenation & nutrient solution uptake.
Arrow Drippers – Soil & Coco For Soil or Coco, the Arrow Drippers should be used, as these mediums hold the nutrient solution, young plants should only be fed once a day, as they grow, the feed should be increased as and when needed, with mature and flowering plants requiring around 5 feeds per 24 hours. And as with Rockwool & Clay Pebbles, an imperium controller can be used for shorter, more frequent feeds to maximize oxygenation & nutrient solution uptake.
- This kit does not include any clay pebbles. You will need approximately 72L of clay pebbles to fill up the 4 pots.

Please Note: When using a Wilma Dripper System never let the level of nutrient solution in the reservoir tank drop below the pump.
Always check the pH & EC levels of newly mixed solutions and any remaining solution in the tank as plants can take on more water than nutrients, meaning pH & EC levels can increase/decrease.
Remember, the feeding times are only a guide and not set in concrete, many different factors comes into play, for example temperatures, humidity, lighting system or type of plants, so growers need to know the signs of under or over feeding and adjust the feeding regime accordingly.
Q. Is the timer included with this Wilma System?
A: One of the only essential components not included in the Wilma kits is the timer to schedule feeding and watering. However, a simple timer, such as the recommended Grasslin Segmental Timer, is inexpensive and comes with the ability to be set at 15 minute intervals over a 24hr period – a time scale ideal for use in the Wilma Systems.
Q. What’s the difference between flood and arrow drippers?
A: The Wilma Systems are supplied with two different drippers to accommodate for the versatility of growing media that can be used. Flood drippers are great when used with clay pebbles whereas arrow drippers are ideal for more absorbent mediums like coco, soil, and rockwool.
Q. Why are clay pebbles most suitable?
A: Although the Wilma System can be used with a variety of growing media the best results and least hassle tend to be from using clay pebbles. As an active hydroponic system using clay pebbles with Wilma pots is a great match. You’ll get the benefits of increased oxygenation at the root zone from using pebbles and you also won’t have to modify the system in any way (which is often the case when using an absorbent medium like soil or coco).
Q. Do the Wilma Systems require regular maintenance?
A: To ensure you keep your plants healthy it’s always wise no matter what set-up you use to regularly clean your growing environment and system. One common issue with dripper systems like the Wilma Systems is the tendency to clog, but this can easily be rectified with a good cleaning product.
