Religious scriptures also mention the circulation of the Tulsi plant. Tulsi should always be circumambulated 3 times.

यानि कानि च पापानि जन्मान्तर कृतानि च तानि तानि प्रणश्यन्ति प्रदक्षिणे याम् पदे पदे

Yani Kani ch papani jnmantar krutani ch tani tani pranashynti pradashine yam pade pade

Mantra to offer water to Tulsi


Offering water to Tulsi also has special significance. However, people put unaccounted water in Tulsi, but this should not be done. Before Tulsi, offer water to the Sun, and the water which is left in the pot, pour into the Tulsi plant. On offering more water, the roots of Tulsi start rotting and the Tulsi plant starts drying up, which is not auspicious at all from the architectural and religious point of view. It also leads to loss of money. Therefore, offer water only a little in Tulsi and while offering water, you should also chant this mantra.

महाप्रसाद जननी, सर्व सौभाग्यवर्धिनी आधि व्याधि हरा नित्यं, तुलसी त्वं नमोस्तुते।। 

Mahaprasad Janani, Sarva Saubhagyavardhini Aadhi Vyadhi Hara Nityam, Tulsi Twam Namostute. 

Meaning: O Mother, accept you in the form of Shri Hari Mahaprasad. O mother who blesses you with good fortune, we salute you again and again.
