The trouble is they are dry... Roots aren't going to search and expand into dry medium when they can stay snug and happy in the wet portion.
Rockwool should be wet - it can dry out - but not completely that the rootball is dry... This is really stressing the plants...
You need to overwater the cubes after you soak them. half strength nutes - then plant. 1 liter is over watering imo - even tho it has 3.4 L worth of medium in the hugo - 1 liter always gave off lots of run off.
Water daily but much less 1 cup 250ml and hte roots will expand out hte cube eventually.

You are kidding right? This is the most bogus information I have read in a while on ICMag... Rockwool Cubes are thee most IDEAL Flood and Drain medium - lol its almost painful to try and explain this... a medium that is a single piece is far more clean - simple and advanced than anything else you flood and drain. no mess - super easy to prep - seriously hugos and deltas are so versatile its making me wonder why I ever went to coco!
Must of been supah stoned on that one!
