Like are there plant versions of musculoskeletal systems to help them move in response to light? How exactly is the movement started?

I think my first comment was deleted because it was too short. In essence, plants have light-seeking cells and these gravitate towards the light. As they expand the plant slowly moves towards the source of the light

Have you ever seen some of those youtube clips showing speeded up motion of plants? They are fascinating.
