No.  I counted the days to emergence from the time I sowed the seeds. 
So, for example, A. philippiana germinated 10 days from the time 
sown.  Any of my seeds that germinated in 30 days or less germinated 
in the warmth of my kitchen or living room and never had a cool 
period except for the slight drop each night when I turned the heat
