Ornithogalum failure to break dormancy (and people asking to unsubscribe)

I'm beginning to form an idea based mostly on personal experience and
reports from other bulbs growers that plants grown from warm climates
(Central Valley or Southern California) don't adjust well to coastal
northern California, especially if they were seed- grown. These seedlings
might have been selected for the warmer climates and probably retain a
"memory" for dormancy based on where they germinated. Taken outside of
that, they have a hard time recalling that memory. Seeds that I grew of the
same species in coastal California germinated very well and the bulbs
return easily from dormancy.
