I absolutely love Hosta's. Every single different one. I know they should be grown in the shade but does this mean its okay to grow them indoors?

Hostas won't make very suitable houseplants. They need to be outdoors where they can experience the change of seasons so they can go dormant during the winter months. If they don't experience cool weather, they won't have a chance to take a needed rest. This will shorten their lifespans. I'd suggest growing them outdoors within view of a window so you can enjoy them in their natural habitat. Best wishes with your hostas!
