Well, i know they are good in the garden, and i have a few indoor plants that dont go outdoors... Was reading about something for a worm farm etc, and was wondering if a plant in a pot with a worm or two would be okay? Or would it be to small of an area...

Most likely the worms will not survive in an indoor plant container. They need a source of food, and they will not get that. Rather than placing worms directly into these, why not create a vermicomposting, or worm composting, bin that provides a nutrient-rich substance to mix into potted plant soil. There is a ton of info on the internet about vermicomposting.

Disclaimer: I don't do indoor plants. However, it doesn't seem like a good idea to put worms in potted plants indoors. Worms have a tendency to roam.
