Hi @Edmund Ong Rich Ming! We'll definitely get in touch w/ you soon and get this sorted out ASAP! Thanks!
Please look for my email too Regarding the incomplete order and a faulty board . Backer 2418.
Hi @Michael Jezierski! Thanks for reaching out! That's strange, we didn't receive any of your emails. No worries, we'll be sending you an email regarding the status of your EcoQube Air. Thanks for your patience and support!
Hi, can you give me an update on my order?
I wrote 2 mails to firstname.lastname@example.org but did not get a respond.
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 email@example.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.
Any updates?? Been waiting for a year now!!

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
Thanks for reaching out! So sorry to hear that.
Could you please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can take proper action regarding this.
We're here for you. Thanks!
I have received my today with big crake on the corner what should I do? After waiting for a long time. It’s make me very upset.
Sorry for the delayed response. Rest assured that one of our representatives will reach out to you as soon as possible. Appreciate your patience, Antonio.
Good morning, I am backer 1708 and I live in Switzerland. I have not received the EcoQube
Hi! Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. One of our representatives will reach out to you in a bit. We appreciate your patience. Thank you.
I finally opened the box to install it in my office and found that you did not include an Australian power adaptor. Is there any chance you can supply 2 as i have two units?
We are so happy to hear that! Thank you for your support! :)
Very Happy with the EcoQube Air and look forward to getting another soon. I also ordered a EcoQube Q for at home.
Very Happy indeed about this Project
Thanks for reaching out! We appreciate your patience.
Absolutely! We'll be sending you the photo as soon as possible.
Could someone please send me a photo of the power supply label to email@example.com? Thank you!
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.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be able to better help you there :)
Unfortunately I can't find the power supply anymore. Which output volts and amps are required? Thanks
I just opened the package, have been away from home for a few months, and noticed that I didn’t receiving the UV light strip or fogger. Can you please send me those two, I’ve backed the option with them.
We've put out a few updates on this, but if you haven't already, please send us your current shipping address and we'll take care of your Air shipment :)
We just want to ensure that we're shipping to the right location since it's been quite a while.

Hi, I still havent recieved mine yet, was hoping for an update?
@Tina, support has sent you a message.
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!
@Steve, we respect your comment. Support will be in touch with you to assist you with the issues or you product.
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.
