Hello. I'll be happy to assist you.
Does she know you are growing marijuana there?
That is an important question. If she's not aware, then she's an "innocent owner," and the government cannot take the property of an innocent owner. Similarly, if you were renting the house and the landlord didn't know you were growing marijuana, then they couldn't take the house. However, if the government can prove that she was aware and living there, then she's no longer an innocent owner and they could take the house.
