|I agree; it is Oxalis. The plant responds to the environment by closing up its leaves and flowers. It does not to be kept too wet so be careful not to overwater. Full sun in Florida may be a bit much so maybe some partial Florida shade might be a good place for it. The plant also will occasionally take a nap - stop growing and appear to have died. If this happens just stop watering for a while; it will wake up and grow again when it feels like it.
