As it was mentioned above, not every plant experiences nyctinasty even though all of them have pulvinus, a vital organ for this process. There are whole families of plants that experience nyctinasty:
1. Fabaceae or legumes (peas, chickpeas, soybeans, beans, peanuts)
2. Marantaceae, or arrowroots (calathea, maranta)
Other examples of plants opened during the day and closed at night are vetches, clovers, and alfalfas. Among flowers, nyctynasty is performed by daisies, tulips, morning glories, lotuses, poppies, oxalises, crocuses, water lilies, and gazanias. Trees like magnolias and roses of Sharon also experience it.
