Germinating Crinum

Hi all,

I have got some Crinum procerum splendens (the red leaves asiaticum type or whatever it is called !) more then a month ago. Some seeds germinated in a matter of days, as all Crinum usually do, but there are still some doing nothing. As I have them just in a shadehouse at natural heat ( I mean a greenhouse which roof is a shadecloth at 90% ) I wonder if they need a bit of heating to germinate. 
I have always germinate Crinum seeds without difficult, but I have usually got the seeds in summer, so heat was enough. Now temps are cooling down at night (abt 8-10°C or 45-48F).
Any suggestion is appreciated.

many thanks
