Mimosa pudica

Pudica in Latin means “shy, bashful”.   Its compound leaves fold inward when touched, giving the impression that the plant is shy.

If the leaves constantly fold and unfold, would the plant feel tired and be exhausted ?   It is interesting to check why this is the result of evolution.
