It may be that our respective climates make the difference. Even though you
have a greenhouse, perhaps your lower nighttime temperatures even inside the
house (provided it is not heated) drop to lower levels during the night than
they do here. 

I know people in the San Gabriel Valley in Los Angeles where Romuleas sprout
readily. Light frosts are not uncommon there in the late fall. That may not
happen in Monterey, it being close to the ocean, but nights in fall are
cooler than here. Possibly, the minimum temperature plays a bigger role than
the day to night variation, which many people and books tell us is the
controlling factor for many of these winter-growing South African seeds.
