What About Mexican (and Probably Mexian) Hymenocallis, First Winter

How do I overwinter some seedlings?  They germinated in summer, and are 
mostly doing fine, but short days seem to be enticing them to go dormant.

I can leave them outside, in pots of good soil that drains well, or I can dry 
them down, or I can find room for some indoors under lights.

I have thought about leaving them outdoors but covering the posts with 
see-through plastic.  The soil won't freeze but frosts of 20-25 can be expected 
several times--with the next day always rising above 32 F.  

Advice appreciated, even random speculation or guesses.
