Applications of TensorFlow, Soil Moisture and NoIR sensors for Plant Health monitoring

For the past many days my wife has been complaining that her sacred plant (Tulasi – Scientific Name – Ocimum sanctum) is getting dried up due to intense heat. Thanks to urban heating effect. She tried many ways of managing the plant but her busy schedule always hinder in getting real time view of the moisture level and other conditions. I was teased to find a solution to resolve this given that I spend time with IoT and Data Science or Big Data jargons. I tried a variety of tools starting with Moisture sensors, NoIR for NDVI calculation to TensorFlow based image classification to come of with solution.
