      Hi, can you give me an update on my order?
      I wrote 2 mails to info@aquadesigninnovations.com but did not get a respond.

      @James Byrne

      We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused you. We really appreciate your feedback. This drives and motivates us to improve our products and services.

      Using the remote will temporarily pause the schedule. When you click on "Resume schedule" or the "Schedule" tab, your schedule will resume. For seedling growth. The pump is always on. For general plant growth. The pump is on for 10 mins every hour.

      We highly suggest splicing because it has a much higher success rate than growing from seeds. You may refer to this blog post > https://getecoqube.com/pages/splice-air

      We 100% back our products. We've made some improvements on the EcoQube Air and we will continue on improving and innovating our products. If there's something else we can do for you, please contact us at info@aquadesigninnovations.com. Thanks!

      So I funded this in the original round but wasn't able to actually use it for almost a year and a half. When I finally got to, I admit I think the unit is very cool. However, the App leaves a lot to be desired, as well as the instructions. While the app allows for a "programmed schedule", the schedule doesn't automatically work!! I have to open the app for the next phase (or change of light/time of day) to actually take place. If I don't open the app, I can go through the entire day without any of the light settings actually changing; the schedule might as well not even exist.

      Additionally, I'm not sure about the water pump. Is it supposed to be on all the time, 24/7? Will that much water flood the seeds and rot the roots or does the growing medium take care of that? My first attempt at the basil that was included was a fail, because after 7-8 days of nothing happening, I started manually cycling the pump on and off. I finally got things sprouted, but then I left town and the automatic cycle that I thought would turn on the pump actually didn't, so my seedlings were all dried out when I returned. The app claims that there are different interval cycles depending on what you grow (it only comes preprogrammed with (2) settings), but I was not able to discern any difference between the two. If the pump was on, it was on 24/7. It didn't matter which plant I chose.

      Overall, as is, I wouldn't recommend this product. It feels incomplete--like the did enough to get funded but have since stop developing anything further on the platform.

      Hi Adi
      after a failed attempt at growing over christmas (unit is in my office at work)
      I cleaned it all up, and re did the sponges and seeds
      I set it off and went off and made a coffee
      i came back and the pump had stopped, i assumed it was normal as i had changed the interval in the settings from seedlings to normal (seedling seemed to drown my plants)
      Since then i have not been able to contact the device, i thought the app was bugged so removed it and cleared cache/data
      now when i refresh the list of devices i cannot see the Ecoqube
      LEDs and Fans are running all the time
      have tried power cycling it to no avail
      please help

      @Brent Lamb

      The number of new mediums that you would need would be similar to the old foam ones, except these just work better :)

      The old sponge/foam mediums are not needed. You can simply replace them with the new ones and surround them with clay pebbles.

      As for mold, that can occur if the environment is too moist. So you may want to try things such as reducing usage of the pump or lowering the setting, turning up the fan setting to air out the humidity, and reducing usage of the light to reduce heat/humidity.

      The new mediums will absorb water MUCH better, so even less pump usage is needed than before. I would recommend trying out the low setting, and if the plant looks like it needs more water, then you can up the setting. But for most cases, I think the low setting should be good.

      So I have almost all but given up on my Air, but seeing your new plan mediums made me think to give it another try. How many mediums do I need? do they stick into the black sponge medium base as the original ones and then get covered in the clay pebbles? Also any tips to prevent mold it is what killed my last plants as they were just trying to get growing.

      I was really loving my EcoQube Air until it suddenly stopped working yesterday. I've been using it since I received it less than a year ago, and have had few problems. As others have said, the app is quite frustrating at times, and really isn't as flexible as I would have hoped. But I was still able to grow some lively basil plants that I had to trim weekly in order to keep them from outgrowing the cube. Everyone in my office loved coming by to see how the plants were doing, and I enjoyed the little bit of nature and all the extra light in my rather dull cubicle. As the weather turned cooler, I decided that I would make the EcoQube the winter home for my young bonsai. I began to use the fogger, which I had previously ignored, as the basil seemed to be thriving well enough without it. As Steve said, the fogger seems pretty underwhelming, and I noticed that I would have to run the fans for the mist to even rise into the plant area at all. No big deal though, my main concern was to provide a warm, well lit area for my bonsai to shelter in. Unfortunately, the pot that my bonsai is in is just a bit too wide to fit down into the watering tray, so I still have to take the pot out to water it a couple times a week. Then, of course, there's the need to "reprogram" the EcoQube once I'm done watering and am ready to close it all up again. A mild inconvenience, really no big deal.

      Anyway, yesterday, after I took the bonsai out and watered it, I put the EcoQube back together and it failed to turn on. I disassembled it completely, disconnected everything on the inside, re connected it, and tried again. No luck. Then I tried just plugging in the power source. No luck with that either. I made sure the rubber gasket wasn't blocking the connector. I tried plugging it in to multiple outlets, and the best I ever got was a momentary flash of light.

      Having run out of ideas, I decided to try to contact you all. I noticed that the EcoQube Air site no longer exists, however, and now I'm a bit concerned. Is there any support structure left for this product? I hope to be able to continue using it!

      I've gotta say, I would not recommend this product if someone were to ask :(

      I waited and waited and waited for this to be shipped - that was the first negative to this experience. But that aside, after having this for a while now, I've realized that the app is very, very poorly built.

      Not only is your ecoqube essentially useless without the app (as others have also pointed out), the control from the app is extremely limited. For example, there are only 3 settings to how often you want the pump to run, which is entirely inadequate for many situations. I don't know why there is not the ability to schedule the pump to run at various, specific points in the day, at various, specific amounts. This seems to have essentially eliminated much of the automation that this device was meant to provide as I have to open the app and force the pump to run when I want it to. Which is essentially the same as watering a plant the traditional way, I just don't have to pick up a watering jug.

      Oh and the fogger is essentially useless as far as I have seen.

      Once I first got my ecoqube, I could not get any of the seeds to grow beyond about an inch tall, which I'm now positive was because I was using the predetermined pump settings in the app (not forcing the pump to run specifically when I need it, like I'm doing now). I switched to some plants that had been started in soil - carefully removed them from the soil and cleaned them off to put into the ecoqube. This first set of plants did ok for about a week but then all died. Again, likely due to the presets for pump frequency in the app being inappropriate. Once I started daily babysitting them, they've been growing very well. In fact, a little TOO well!

      It's a nice looking box for sure, but it's completely self defeating that I have to manage this thing daily by loading up the app and force the pump on/off when I need it. I think the hardware itself is probably pretty good, but the app is just really, really poorly built. If the app is fixed to include better scheduling features, I think that could heavily change my opinion of this product. I don't see any reason why this would not be possible. But until then, I can't recommend.
