NANFA-L-- shortening wintering period(E. gloriosus) possible?

I've been wintering E. gloriosus(one definite pair-also have 2 or so
juveniles) in hopes of breeding them. Its January by now and they have
not been fed by me since November. Currently in a container packed
with java moss.

Just curious but has anyone tried shortening this cooling period? I'm
a bit nervous about keeping them cold for so long. The plan, of
course, is to breed them in spring-dunno if shortened time will make
any difference.

Opinions or experience appreciated.
