  • Lily pads are classified as a "treasure" when fishing.

  • If a lily pad is placed on the water in a farm, the water will still irrigate the nearby tilled land.
  • A boat can break lily pads.
  • Lily pads can block a player directly under them from surfacing, potentially causing drowning under specific circumstances.
