I think that Fritillaria have bulbs not corms? most (including affinis,
pudica and camschatensis) want to grow during the non frozen periods of
winter and most dessicate very easily when stored out of soil. 64 F sounds
rather warm for storage and if at all damp at this temperature I would
expect them to grow roots or else go mouldy. Bulbs certainly can be stored
for 18 months and still be viable because I have done it, though not with
Fritillaria. I would suggest sand rather than wood shavings and to keep
them cooler -perhaps around 50 F
