Worms in my shamrocks

I have recently noticed a large number of worms in my indoor shamrocks. If anyone can help identify them it would be highly appreciated. I attached a photo, hopefully you all can see it. They are about two centimeters long, or the length of a bottle cap on average. Thank you in advance.

They might be millipedes. The round shape and little legs make me think they are millipedes.

Wireworms, baby click beetles. Hopefully you've eliminated them by now. They love to eat tubers and bulbs.
