Is flash mode available in remote capture? If so, perhaps one could be
used to obtain a consistent exposure (no AE, and the "shutter speed"
effectively is determined by the flash).

Perhaps you could include a test pattern in the frame (ie, place a
picture of a test pattern next to the plant) and be able to match
exposure settings by adjusting the levels of the images such that the
two test patterns match (if this works, it could likely be automated).
