The seeds can be found inside the flower heads. You collect the seedhead/pod when the flowers fade and dry. Someone suggested that you can know when to collect the seeds by waiting until the flower heads start sticking to you like velcro whenever you brush against the bush.

Q. Manettia Candy corn plant

Will the candy corn plant live outside in the winter in MN? If it can, what do I need to do?

This plant can only survive the winter in gardening zones 9 and warmer, so it won't survive in MN. If you have it growing in a container, you can simply move it inside. If not, you will have to treat it as an annual and plant it again next year. Another option is to take a cutting and grow it over the winter in a pot. Here's how:

Q. Moving a candy cane plant inside

If I take a candy cane plant indoors for the winter, do I need to cut it back? It is climbing up a trellis I have in the pot right now.

The only things I could find were candy corn vine, or candy cane oxalis (which isn't a vine). Is candy corn vine what you are referring to, by chance? I will include the links to care for both, and you can see if one of those matches your description.

You can root pieces of the plant in, both, soil or water. It can also help to add a little drop of honey, and/or a crushed aspirin tab to the water. These are both very beneficial rooting agents.

This article will give you more information on the care of these after rooting: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/vines/candy-corn-plant/growing-candy-corn-vines.htm
