Hello and welcome! After their bloom time, tuberoses will grow foliage for a while, make new bulbs, then begin to go dormant for a few months. This is what's happening now. You have some good foliage there so your plants are making nice new bulbs.

Let them dry out a bit and 'ripen' the old foliage while your coolest weather is going on, then you can begin reviving them (with water and some plant food) from the new bulbs in maybe February.
