Answer: By keeping them in the fridge, you have correctly given them a cold-treatment. This is called stratification and dodecatheon seeds require this in order to break dormancy and to germinate. Your seeds should be lightly covered with seed starting mix at planting time. You don't need to place them under fluorescent lights; natural light is fine. (Seeds that require light to germinate are sown on the soil surface and not covered with soil; seeds that germinate in the dark are covered with soil.) Hope this clarifies things for you.
