I also had no success germinating Tecophilaea seed until I was given 
some fresh seed in mid-October.  They did not experience any hot 
conditions, but germinated in one month.

Unfortunately at some point well before they were big enough to 
flower, I treated them inconsiderately during dormancy, from which 
they never emerged.

I am trying again.  12 Archibald seeds, in my house - about 18 C in 
the daytime.  6 weeks have passed (sigh).
