If it were late in flowering and raining for many days you might have reasons to worry. But since its early flowering she should be fine. You could always cover her from the rain though as it can be known to have contaminates in it that can cause mildew etc. But if its just a couple days and then sunny again she'll be ok. My 3 girls endured 2 weeks of on off rain in the spring and i was freaking out, but they did great handling it, the wind caused more damage than any rain.
Happy flowering season :blush:

@greenlinejunkie Hey there!

I know this is 2 weeks old, but I figured I would mention this for anyone else interested. Be very careful of budroot and mildew issues that can be caused by stagnant rain on your plants without proper ventilation!

After a rain I highly suggest a good shaking of the leaves to remove excess water droplets and increase the airflow! When using pots/containers like the one being used here I highly suggest a cover to avoid rain from getting into the soil mixture. Other than that rain doesn't mean the end of the world, just make sure to create airflow and shake excess water!

Hello ! I'm experiencing a perpetual switch between sun & rain with my Grow caps run and the only issue I had was a rain flush of my medium and nutrients and a slight over watering that the sun solved in less than 4 days. At that stage it can't affect buds but if next week's remains rainy then I would recommend you to put her indoor. Hope it will help you :+1::grin:

Hello @Greenlinejunkie ! At this stage you are ok as long as you have proper drainage . But for the flowering stage is not ok. You will have a high risk for botrytis . You need to find a way to protect it from the rain. It is better to figure it now how you are going to do it than let it for later. Happy growing ! :facepunch:

Hi, as long as you have holes in your bucket............... rain does not harm your plant in that stage.

Hi @Greenlinejunkie! The worst scenario would be bud-rot (mold), this can happen because of high relative humidity and/or bad airflow. It's too early for you since you don't have buds yet, but if those weather conditions continue for the next weeks, you might consider to protect your plant/buds from the heavy rain with a roof/tarpaulin/DIY-solution. Now about the over-watering possibility, this should not happen if your container is perforated at the bottom. Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

hey there greenline, you're good as long as it's not too many days in a row, usually the soil will hold enough heat for the evening, not much you can do anyway, but don't worry this is a totally normal range it might even help your trykes come out nice too. good luck my friend, they look great at this stage !
