Lily pads can be instantly mined with anything.
Lily pads can be found naturally on water in swamps and wheat farm rooms of woodland mansions.
Lily pads can be obtained as a "treasure" item while fishing.
Wandering traders can sell lily pads in sets of 2 for one emerald.
Normal blocks can be placed on the bottom side of lily pads (from below). This breaks the lily pad (dropping it as an entity), but leaves the block in place. Since lily pads can be placed anywhere on water, this is useful for starting construction mid-ocean without need to start from the bottom or shore, for example when starting construction of an ocean monument draining system.
Lily pads must be directly planted on the top of a water, ice or frosted ice block; unlike most blocks, targeting the side of a block which would result in it being placed in top of a valid block will not allow it to be placed.
Lily pads face a consistent direction, which depends on their location and is not affected by the direction the player is facing. Replacing a lily pad will not change the direction.
Unlike most blocks entities can collide with, lily pads can be placed directly inside players. This is considered a bug in Java Edition, but is a feature intentionally programmed into the game in Bedrock Edition.
Placing a lily pad into a composter has a 65% chance of raising the compost level by 1.
- In inventory, Lily pad have color: #71c35c.
- Otherwise, Lily pad have color: #208030.

- When lily pads are placed on water source blocks that do not take up the space of the entire block (when the water is flowing to the block next to it), the lily pad will appear floating above the water source block.
- In the Legacy Console Edition, if a swamp is next to a taiga at the edge of the world, lily pads in the swamp may spread to the taiga ocean, which could be frozen, causing it to generate on ice.
- If the player sprints on lily pads, they will appear to give off water particles. This is because the game thinks the player is technically on the water below the lily pad.
