I have 3 questions. First will this plant survive indoors during the winter? What are the little shoots of bean looking sprouts on this plant? Is it seeds?

Linda,

Those bean looking shoots are seed pods. The plant can take temps below freezing but not as low as will occur in a typical Amarillo winter. If you bring it in you will need to provide a very bright window to keep it growing over winter. Otherwise I might try to find a cold but protected indoor spot such as a garage where it could go dormant, but not drop below about 28 or 30 degrees.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
