SYBR II problems

I am having problems with SYBR Green II (FMC) for RNA staining. After
running the RNA agarose gels, I immerse them in 10 mM sodium phosphate
buffer, pH 6.8 and a 1:5,000 SYBR Green II (as indicated by FMC). Bands
become clearly visible over a transilluminator only after 4 hours of
incubation, instead of the 30 minutes mentioned by FMC. Hints anyone?
