My tuberose just started sending up bloom stalks, but the temp is going down to low 30 and upper 20. The leaves have not turned yellow yet. I don't have the room to put in sunny window, and don't know what to do.
Why don't you try digging it up and putting it into a pot so you can bring it in for the night, and set it back outside in the morning when it warms up a bit. Make it a large pot so you can include lots of roots. When it finishes blooming and starts to turn yellow, you can store the tubers as usual.

Every year I pray my tuberoses won't pull the ole bud drop. I have 14 pots of tubers and sometimes they don't even bloom. They just turn brown and fall. They are about 14 inches right now with buds but not looking too good - tiny buds this year and some are fat buds. What can I do to increase the flowering and lessen browning and bud drop? I have only had them for 2 yrs and I live on the east coast in Florida with lots of humidity. I'm ready for the stakes because they actually droop over almost in half. Is there anything I should know about a specific way to stake them, like what to use or what not to use? I'm scared to even touch them. I know they need a good fertilizing right now. Was it ok that I used a tab of epsom salt to gallon of water on them like I do my plumerias? It's very hard to find good info on these bulbs *(plants). Please help.
This article will refresh you on the care requirements.
Have planted several tuberose in pots in conservatory. They are currently flowering (amazing scent at night). Cannot find info about aftercare once flowers are gone. Can I just cut them down in the hope they will rebloom in the winter or do I store in dry shed and replant early spring again? Any help appreciated
I'm sure the smell is wonderful from several Tuberose plants blooming.
Here is a link with care information and how to store bulbs after they are done blooming.
2x4 in long 6 inch deep pots. Plenty of leaf, but no flowers. Thinking of taking out and planting in sheltered spot in garden. why did they not flower ? Brian

I do not have a photo
This can happen with even the slightest problems during storage. These are very picky about winter storage conditions, and must be cared for in a certain way in zones cooler than 9. You are in zone 7 so proper care must be taken to ensure proper growth and flowering.

I’ve had my plant for more thank 2 years. The leaves have been healthy until an infestation of aphids but it’s still alive. There are only half a dozen leaves left but it’s never bloomed.
If you grow them in pots, there can be a few reasons why a mature size bulb won't bloom. One is the temperature is not warm enough during growing season, and the other is that the overwintered bulb was not kept dry enough, causing the potential flower buds inside the bulb to die.
It has enough sun and has sandy soil and good water drainage
It may be a good idea to divide the bulbs and replant them. They also need lots of water at bloomtime. Here's an article that should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/bulbs/tuberose/tuberose-plant-info.htm
