Very basic Lachenalia questions

I live in Auckland, New Zealand (supposedly subtropical)  The 
Lachenalias have just finished and are going dormant.  I am curious as 
to what constitutes 'cool' temperatures.  Mine are fine outside, where 
daytime temperatures range from 15-19ºC, nightime 11-12ºC. Are those 
considered 'cool' temperatures.  They are exposed to the weather (spring 
weather so quite a lot of rain) and in well draining mix, wicking the 
water from under the pots.  Quite a few were given to me, so am getting 
quite a selection.  And am growing more seeds I was sent.

The L. aloides has been growing in the garden for years, also a yellow 
one which is a hybrid of some sort.  Possibly L. Romaud.
