Default Starter isnt Fermenting?

So I mixed 2500ml of water w/ a tad over a cup of DME, boiled it cooled to were it was gentle to the touch add my White Labs Cali. Ale yeast, up a stopper and airlock on the beaker, and let it sit over night at 64* go to look at it 12hrs ater and nothing?

This was my first try at one BTW, b/c Im about to brew a big IPA today, or try to.

Starters shouldn't go into fermentation, that means there wasn't enough oxygen for cell growth.
