We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]
Lily pads can be instantly mined with anything.
Natural generation[edit | edit source]
Fishing[edit | edit source]
Lily pads can be obtained as a "treasure" item while fishing.
Usage[edit | edit source]
Lily pads can be used to make paths over water without having to build bridges or use full blocks. Lily pads are broken and drop as an item when water flows on it. Mobs cannot spawn on lily pads.
Normal blocks can be placed on the bottom side of lily pads (from below). This breaks the lily pad (dropping it as 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 ocean monument draining system.
Placement[edit | edit source]
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.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- 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 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 you sprint on lily pads, they will appear to give off water particles. This is because the game thinks you are technically on the water below the lily pad.
