The innovative Origin/Wilma Systems combine the ease of growing in pots with the benefits of automated, timer-based feeding. Hand-watering your plants daily can not only be an inconvenience, but it also comes with the risk of overwatering and overfeeding, which is a common problem for many growers.
Origin/Wilma Systems use a re-circulating hydroponic drip-feed system that can be used with a variety of growing media. For simplicity and the best results we always recommend using clay pebbles with the Origin/Wilma pots. Clay pebbles ensure the roots of your plants get plenty of aeration to encourage growth. They also limit the maintenance of adapting these systems for absorbent media like soil (which often requires a set-up with a separate nutrient tank).
It has long been known that watering and feeding plants little and often can boost growth and overall yields compared to watering and feeding once a day. One of the key benefits of the Origin/Wilma System is the ability to stagger watering and feeding so your plants get a regular supply of nutrients and water without running the risk of over-doing it.
The Origin/Wilma System is also a wise step for any grower looking to make the transition from soil to hydroponic gardening. The pots keep the familiarity of soil-based systems whereas the automated feeding introduces growers to this beneficial aspect of hydroponic gardening.
The complete Origin/Wilma kit contains a tank, tray, pots, pump, delivery system, flood drippers, arrow drippers, and complete instructions for effortless set up.
- Flood and arrow drippers to suit all growing needs
- Versatile and can be used with virtually all growing media
- Combines simplicity of pots with benefits of automated feeding
- Interchangeable pot sizes for effortless replanting
Please Note: This kit does not include any clay pebbles. You will need approximately 144L of clay pebbles to fill up the 8 pots.
Origin/Wilma Systems are an innovative product and a fantastic introduction to automated feeding and watering. They reduce the burden of having to hand-water your plants daily and minimise the risk of overwatering / overfeeding. Plus they are great for any growers wanting to test the transition from soil to hydroponic gardening.

Q. Is the timer included with this Origin/Wilma System?
A: One of the only essential components not included in the Origin/Wilma kits is the timer to schedule feeding and watering. However, a simple timer, with the ability to be set at 15 minute intervals over a 24hr period – a time scale ideal for use in the Origin/Wilma Systems.
Q. What’s the difference between flood and arrow drippers?
A: The Origin/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 Origin/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 Origin/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 Origin/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 Origin/Wilma Systems is the tendency to clog, but this can easily be rectified with a good cleaning product.
