Those are tiny dried up flowers. What houseplants are you growing?

from the shape is there any chance it could be Hoya? @Blanks5.

Hi blanks5, Welcome!
We could probably help with a more exact ID if you can upload photos of some of your plants here or tell us the names of some of the houseplants you grow. That being said, it looks like dried blooms of a Hoya plant to me also, rather than seeds. For comparison, this is a photo of Hoya carnosa blooms ...

I thought about dried Hoya flowers also.

It does look like dried up Hoya flowers. But it would really help to get a photo of the actual plant, there are different varieties of Hoya. Take close up shots of the leaves, it will help greatly to id it hopefully.

There may be lots of "houseplants" with flowers like that but it sure reminds me of spent hoya blooms.
