Combine the Convenience and Simplicity of the Origin (Wilma) Dripper System with Root Pruning from RhizoPot Fabric Pots!
Origin (Wilma) Systems are great value-for-money and incredibly easy to use, producing exceptional results in almost any growing medium. While standard Wilma Systems come as standard with square plastic pots, we decided to bring the benefits of root pruning by offering the fantastic RhizoPot Fabric Pots as an alternative. Several sizes are available to suit just about any grow-space.
How the RhizoPot Origin (Wilma) Dripper System Works
In Origin (Wilma) Systems, nutrient solution is held in a reservoir which is also the base of the system. A water pump is used to pump the nutrient solution from the reservoir, through the drip-lines and out through drippers inserted into each of the pots, which sit on a collection tray on top of the reservoir. The nutrient solution then returns to the reservoir ready to be used again.
Origin (Wilma) dripper systems come as standard with square plastic pots. While these standard pots do an admirable job, we thought that Wilmas could be greatly improved if root pruning could be incorporated. That's why we decided to offer Wilma systems with RhizoPot Fabric Pots as an alternative. Get the benefits of root pruning and the convenience & simplicity of a Wilma all in one. Fantastic! RhizoPot Fabric Pots are also sometimes known as Root Pouches and Air Pruners.
Please note: our grow systems are designed to provide years of trouble free use, but for complete peace of mind, secure pipework that's joined onto barbed fittings using jubilee clips or cable ties, and place run-off trays / floor secure sheeting underneath the system & reservoir. It's much better to be safe than sorry.

How To Use
How to Use the RhizoPot Origin (Wilma) System
The Origin (Wilma) System is a great growing system for new and seasoned growers alike. The whole system can be put together in minutes. Simply place the reservoir in the correct location in your grow-room, put the top trays on top of the reservoir and then place the pots onto it. Install the pump and distribution piping. Fill the pots with your substrate (soil, coco, rockwool, clay pebbles). Run drip-lines from the piping to each pot and connect the correct dripper for the substrate you are using (use the flood-drippers for clay pebbles and use the arrow-drippers for substrates with greater water retention - soil, coco, rockwool).
Fill the reservoir with of water and mix in your nutrients, boosters and additives according to your feeding schedule. Transplant your plants into the pots and insert the drippers into the substrate in each pot close to each plant. Most growers use a 24Hr timer such as the Grasslin time-switch to switch the water-pump on and off and thereby control the feeding times. Set your programmed time-switch to the correct time, plug it into a mains outlet and switch on. Plug the water-pump into the timer. The pump will now water your plants according to the programme you have set on the timer.
Most segmental timers have a minimum 15-minute on-period. For small plants in clay pebbles start with 2 or 3 15-minute feeds per day spread out through the lights-on period. For small plants in more water-retentive media, start with one or two 15-minute feeds per day. For both types of media, the number of feeds per day will usually need to be increased as your plants grow larger. If you're using soil, we recommend buying a 7-day timer, to allow you to feed less regularly. You'll find the timers you need for the job in the Irrigation Timers section.
