I have an open extended balcony or what you may call a small terrace in which I have kept my potted plants. As monsoons are fast approaching I would like to know if I need to cover my plants under a plastic sheet or can I keep them in the open. All my potted plants have good drainage so water logging should not be a big problem.


Your advise will be really helpful.

Plants love rainwater and love to get drenched in rain - rainwater almost acts like fertilizer. The thing you need to take care of is not let water stagnate in container. Even if the containers have good drainage, its better to cover them as the nutrients will leach out of the container.
