can seeds be put straight into vermiculite after germination or should they firstly be raised in rockwool starter cubes?

In general, germinated seeds can be put straight into their growing medium.

Vermiculite and perlite might be an exception; since they don't have a very dense structure when in a pot, they may present problems for a new seedling and interfere with its developing root system getting a proper 'grip' on the medium.

It's probably better to let seedlings establish their central root system in a denser medium like rockwool (a small 3cm cube would be fine, as would a 10cm cube), then place the rockwool in the vermiculite once roots are emerging from it.
