In search of "strange" plant

Mimosa pudica is not only sensitive to touch. It reacts aswell to heat and
light changes. If there is a sudden light change (for example, if it is in
a shade and then taken off to the sun, many leaves will react). Also, when
the night is approaching, many leaves will close, like if they were
touched. I've already tried it with sound, but it didn't work, but it is
possible that it works, since the plant reacts to strong vibrations.
