Best conditions to store mirabilis jalapa tuber over winter?

New Milford, CT

Usually I just start seeds indoors in March, but this year I wound up with a couple of tubers that came up readily and I want to try to store them in the hope that the plant will bloom earlier in the summer than seed-started ones do. It's no fun having flowering annuals for just a few weeks in late summer! If anyone thinks this is a waste of time, though, please let me know!

Past experience with tubers is that they either get too dried out, or too wet and moldy.
