I've only germinated three species - Lycoris sanguinea, L. sprengeri and L. longituba - but in my experience they germinated like garden forms of Paeonia lactiflora,  i.e. right away if sown as soon as collected and erratically after that under local outdoor conditions. 

Here any seedlings are very vulnerable to bulb fly larvae.
