I am guessing that what you meant to ask was:
How does a lily pad grow in water?
There are a lot of different species of water
lilies but for the most part lily pads float on
the water and have roots that reach the muddy
bottom. Lily pads get nutrients from these roots
just like other plants. Some lily pads can also
absorb nutrients from the water itself via
either roots just dangling in the water and
perhaps even via the leaves directly. Of course
all lily pads also photosynthesize.
Hope this answers your question.
