    As long as you drain out the pot(s) and tray(s) once they get filled up from the rain, your VFT's won't have a probelem. Just make sure they don't stay submerged in the water for too long. "Rain beatdowns" don't kill VFT's, drownings do.

    When dormant they should be able to survive down to 20 F (-7 C) or so.

    Provided they had adequate time to go dormant they should be able to tolerate brief periods of temps below -7C, perhaps a week or so. If you have an unheated garage, basement or attic window you may want to move them there. Another possibility is covering the plants in mulch, like old pine needles or straw/hay and then with a tarp or cloth. The fridge if that's the only option left.

    We're talking average minimum temp when I say -7C so just because it dips to -8C one need not panic.
