Leaving items on outdoor teak table

Hi all,

This is a bit of a silly question, but I couldn't find an answer: I have an unfinished teak table out on my deck, and I was thinking of leaving a potted plant on the table permanently as a centerpiece: will this be bad for the table? I was wondering if the plant might prevent the table from drying properly after rain. The table is slatted so water will drain, but I wasn't sure if moisture might still be a problem?

2 problems - It will block light and the covered spot will be a different color.

It will trap humidity and leave a moldy or stained spot on the slats.
