Please identify 'houseplant'?

We have a houseplant which we grew from seed 8 years ago. It is now 24" tall and produces a white sap when removing dead leaves, tiny white flowers and fires the seeds out. We have lots of seedlings too growing around the base.... will post photos any help in identifying it much appreciated.Sal1
