The lotus effect is where a object is covered by a super sticky substance that is so thick, not even water can go in it. Water will simply stay on top of it in drops. The water drops just stay on the object. Here's a photo: 

 As you cane see the water is just settled on to the leaf. It would not suck in the water for some type or reason. Ususally water plants need water and sunlight to survive but this a possible chance it's not a plant because it's not taking the water.
