I went to repot these "Pink Passion" Dracaena Palm plants to bring them inside and there were pink potato looking tubers beneath them. What should I do with them? I have a bunch and they were under both plants. Thanks!

Looks like sweet potatoes (Ipomoea batatas.)

Was the Dracaena part of a community pot planting that contained a ornamental Sweet Potato (Ipomoea batatas)? The ornamental Sweet Potato will produce potato tubers.

Now that you mention it, yes! There was a green vine (potato vine) in the arrangement! That never occurred to me Blinking So can those be used to propagate a new potato vine for next season like a normal potato? That would be really cool! Thanks for responding...I have grown a lot of vegetables but am new to flowers and ornamental plants!

**looked it up and found out they can even be eaten. Sorry for my ignorance - I totally didn't know those were a type of actual sweet potato plant! Learning every day:)
