We regularly store crinum seeds in the refrigerator.  They are put in 
ziptop plastic bags, labeled, and put in the fridge.  The temperatures run 
somewhere around 39°F  or +4°C.

The seeds will normally germinate during this time.  A few will get moldy, 
and such dead or dying seeds should be removed as soon as their condition 
is detected.
