Generally, poppies cannot be grown indoors. There are varying light and moisture requirements even within each species that make indoor situation unsuitable. The changes necessary to promote flowering are daylight length, humidity, and temperature.

The type that you have will determine all of those factors.

This is a grey area that I will not dive deeper into, since once it does flower- it can become a felony, quite quickly, in some circumstances.
