I have hundreds of flytraps at the moment, sitting on my uncovered back patio. They get rained on all the time, doesn't faze them in the least. The only special consideration that I give them is in the soil department. Since they're potted in a mix of peat moss, perlite, and sand, heavy rains are likely to float the perlite out of the pots. I put a thin layer of sphagnum moss on top of the soil, kinda like putting pine straw around the bushes. My plants have sat through hurricane downpours without losing a speck of soil. And the pots look nice with the sphagnum moss top dressing.
