Clones in rockwool cubes going to hydroton E&F system question....

Hey all,
Had a question. I'm will be running an Ebb and Flow system in a tray with individual pots containing Hydroton. My clones come in 1.5" rockwool cubes. Do I just stick the cube in the hydroton or try to peel away some of the rockwool before sticking in the hydroton?

I may be over thinking it but I know rockwool holds water better than hydroton, when I get to the stage where roots have grown out of the rockwool I'll still have a block of rockwool holding water at the base of the plant. If I have a watering schedule for the hydroton, will that block stay saturated and cause rot problems?

Hi

During many years, I made clones in rockwool cubes then transplant them in hydroton.
But I always recover rockwool, like you could do with soil, because it s not a good things to have as you said, a block of rockwool holding water as the base of the plant.

Greetings
