Temperature has a lot to do with seed germination rates. I suspect the soil outdoors is warmer during the day than the potting soil indoors, which will tend to be about the same temperature as the air temperature within your home. The potting soil won't make a difference in germination rates but moisture content will. The only other thing that might affect germination rates is the depth of the seed. If you planted them at the proper depth (as outlined on the seed package), and keep the potting soil moist but not soggy wet, the indoor seeds should sprout within the next week. Best wishes with your new plants.
