Yes, they will do well if you can keep them under lights or a nice sunny window. Watch out for mealy bugs though and white fly.

Also what you can do is dig out the tuber (potato) and store that until spring.
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...
