Hello! Looking for some help identifying my plant-Google is not helping with my description. It has leaves in bunches of 3 that open in the sun and close at night. It also has tiny white flowers when it's sunny enough (no flowers right now though because it's indoor and winter time).

Thank you!

Hard for my bad eyesight to tell but I wonder if it might be a variety of Wood Sorrels (Oxalis)

Do the flowers look anything like these?

YES! They look exactly like that, I think you're right!

It could be Oxalis triangularis, especially if you got it close to St. Patrick's Day.
