Hi,
I know absolutely nothing about plants, but I have this which was sold as a houseplant. However I don't know what it is, and therefore don't know how to take care of it or where in the house to place it etc. It's around 8 inches from the bottom of the pot to the top of the plant, with small white flowers and narrow leaves. I doubt it's anything too obscure as it was sold in an ordinary garden centre - any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks

Here are the pics (sorry they're not great):






I have/can take more if anyone needs them.

That's a double Campanula, a mini-type. I once had blue one called C. "Elizabeth Oliver" outside.

You'd better not ask me, since I've managed to kill mine. Laughing They like normal conditions, not too wet, and not too dry.

I know that out of doors, Campanula likes moist, partly shady conditions. I've never grown them indoors. Good luck.

I have a large patch of white companulas in the garden and just to confuse you they are in full sun. They grow by the side of my pond and spread every year even with the harsh weather conditions here in Scotland.
