Lily Pad Strategy
Lily Pads allow plants to be placed on water squares in the pool. A Potato Mine, Spikeweed and Spikerock can’t be placed on a Lily Pad, but all other plants can be. Some plants, like Tangle Kelp and Sea-Shroom don’t need a Lily Pad to be planted in the pool. Lily Pads can be upgraded to Cattails in Dave’s Shop.
Wait until you have a good sun economy going before you start planting lily pads in the pool. Use Lily Pads in any place where you would like to place a plant, and also use them to slow down Dolphin Rider Zombies. You’ll need to use a Lily Pad in the pool to take full advantage of the explosion radius of a Doom-Shroom, but it will destroy the Lily Pad in the process.
