How long are the roots of a Lily Pad?
A Water Lily is classified as an aquatic plant and it's roots are attached to the bottom of the lake or pond. So I think what you are really asking is the length of the stem that then attaches to the root at the muddy bottom.
In researching your answer I found a lot more information on how to get rid of these pretty but sometimes invasive plants than true facts about their structure. It appears that the stem length fluctuates with the depth of the water but can be 12-15 feet in length.
