Welcome! tck121960. We'll need some pictures so that an id can be made.

For anyone growing vegetables, worms are just a fact of life. But still, it is nice to know what you have going on.

I'm going to take a wild guess here and say millipede.

They not dangerous to you. Mostly they eat decaying plant matter which is a good thing but some species may eat you seedlings so they might be a problem in garden with young germinating plants.

The title of this post is 'My Houseplants'. I think the wormy things are inside the house.

I understand that this is a houseplant problem, not a vegetable problem. I simply pointed out that we who grow vegetables deal with worms all the time. The birds love it when I go worm-picking. Thumbs up Still, only pictures will tell the tale.
