After i planted my germinated seeds, a day later they had broken through my rockwool, but i am using a hydro garden, don't know if that makes a difference or not.

How deep did you put the sprouts? I take mine and put them in so the seed head is just visable above the dirt. This is after allowing the root to get about a half inch long. Lightly press the dirt around the seed so that it makes real good contact with the root. In a day or two, you should have your seedling starting to unfold. If you bury them an inch down, sometimes the seed will simply die. If you're in doubt, use a very small piece of wire or the tip of a butter knife and gently move the soil until you find the seed. If it's cracked and sprouted, just move it up toward the surface until you can do as I said above.

Good luck man.

Don't guess. Look for them and you might be able to save them. Just do as I said above.

If the seed is gone, then "something" took it. They don't dissolve.

A. Never use pre-ferted poting soil.
B. Never use anything with miracle grow in it.

Now that you revealed that you planted them outside, I'd say something likely ate the seedling.
Lots of birds and insects love seeds and just-sprouted seeds.

Dig a 3' x 3' deep hole and replace with quality potting soil (like Fox Farms) for each plant, and use a mini-greenhouse for each plant.
