Storing tuberous begonias and caladiums, pot and all

An idea:would this work?

I brought my deck pots inside about two weeks ago, that contain tuberous begonias and caladiums. The caladiums died back a few weeks earlier: the first cold seems to have sent them into dormancy. Now the stems have dropped off almost all the tuberous begonias and they are ready to dig up.

But do I need to dig them, at all? The combination worked so well ; I would just replant them in the same way next year, anyway. Can I just store them in my cool dark basement (sump pump closet), planted in the pots as they are, pot and all?

Or do they both need a different sprouting up process in the spring? Thanks!
