I've had issues before where after transplant, my maters just stop growing completely.  I'm generally of the mind that this happens when I plant them too small.  I don't transplant seedlings unless they have true leaves, however sometimes I will plant a seedling with only two true leaves as I am just hopeful that way.

So I hit The Google.   It usually only takes me about four minutes to find the dick-my-way-or-YOU-SUCK-AND-ALL-YOUR-PLANTS-WILL-DIE gardener.  Never fails.  Anyway, as I love OPD, here ya go!  I'll add as I find.

THIS is an example of how a helpful thread operates.  Nobody made the newbie feel stupid for rookie mistakes.  Everyone was a new gardener at one point.  The hints were kindly communicated and thorough.  http://forums.gardenweb.com/discussions/2095866/transplants-all-dead
