I found that if you switch to numbers, which you pointed out will allow you to choose a list and the level, you can switch back to bullets and the list and level is maintained.

That is just how InDesign works—so it's feature, not a bug. This forum automates bullets, but InDesign gives us complete control over all options.
So, use the bullets button on the Control Panel to create the first level. I'd recommend saving it as a ¶ style.
Then, select the first group of second level bullets. Hold Alt or Opt and click on the Bullets button to open Bullets and Numbering. Click Add.
Pick the desired bullet, click on Add, then Ok.
Choose the new symbol and increase the Left Indent value.
This may be more work than you were hoping for, but does this forum—or Word—give you easy access to flower bullets?
Barb - THANK YOU!!!! I was searching the forums for an hour for this and I kept finding advice to open the paragraph styles pane, but my version (CC) did not seem to have any of what they were talking about. Or else they were talking about how to set up and name styles. Far more complicated than what I wanted to know - to click the darned paragraph symbol to toggle the tools at the top bar. The rest was straightforward - though I can't seem to find a hollow circle still.
But..I am so grateful to you right now! have a good night.
The trick to a hollow circle bullet is to find a font that has that character.
Alt/Opt click on the bullet button, Add.
I used Wingdings.
But they are huge.
So I created a character style to make them smaller and used a baseline shift to adjust the vertical position, and assigned it through the Bullets & Numbering dialog box.
P.S. I just re-read the original Q&A from last September and see that I used a degree symbol, found in any font. That works, too.
