There is a significant problem with the availability of medicinal plants for the treatment of various diseases. Nymphaea lotus (Indian lotus) is one such plant, which is primarily available in the Indian subcontinent. This paper investigates the analysis of this medicinal plant with the help of a genetic algorithm. Himalayan yew, false black pepper, Indian snakeroot, and Indian lotus are four medicinal plants. These four have some unique medicinal values, which has caused them to be overharvested, bringing them to the verge of extinction. Among the four identified plants the Indian lotus is considered sacred and is extensively used in festivals, temples, and other places, which is causing overharvesting of the plant. The plant being considered sacred in this country has also to be preserved for its medicinal values and hence this paper envisages the same using a varied analysis modifying the population and the possible ways to prevent its extinction in the context of its requirement for recovering full medicinal values if it comes under extinction and the number of generations it would take to retrieve the same. The analysis proved that this genetic algorithm-based analysis will pave way to preserve the plant from extinction and help in reshaping the medicinal timeline of this country for these plants.
