This is not to disagree with any learned scholar, but
I have encountered many traditional, devout women 
Sri Vaishnavas who pluck tuLasI to offer them to their 
perumAL.  They also do it reciting the tuLasi-haraNa 
Slokas that are in vogue in our sampradAya. My feeling
is that each person should follow the practices of
their family as guided by their own acharya.
