    I'm looking for a plant that wilts when you touch it, then, after a few minutes, grows to full stature once more.* Does anyone know what the name of this plant is?

    Hi JLR,

    Sensitive plant aka Mimosa pudica is probably the one you are thinking of.* I saw this growing wild in the Amazon jungle.* It can become a weed in frost free areas if planted outside.

    There is also the prayer plant aka Maranta leuconeura that folds its leaves up at night.* There is a very pretty red veined version and one that has blotches on it's leaves.
