|I have some perennial baby's breath seeds and I want to grow them in a pot as a houseplant. When I try to look up info on how to care for them indoors year round, the websites always say to transplant them outside in the summer. Has anyone on here successfully kept them alive indoors only?|

|My guess is that they need a lot more light than you will provide. I wouldn't even try it. Most things you see growing outdoors do not make for good house plants.|

|@gracesplants did you ever try it? I was just wondering the same thing since I have some cut baby's breath in a floral arrangement I was thinking of propagating.|

|I have never tried but since you have the seeds, what do you have to lose only some seeds.
I would put them under lights , treat them like you treat other seeds and see what happens.
Nothing ventured nothing gained

| Bria don't expect your cut stems to root and grow. You would need some stem with large leaves well below the flowers in order to get roots. In general, the growers don't cut the stems down far enough to be viable for rooting.
