Is there a right exposure for digitizing colour negatives?

Conversions are done in Photoshop cc 2120.

All landscapes were shot 4:00~8:00am or 4:00~8:00pm.
Street shots were normal day time, outdoors & indoors.
Flora shots 7:00~8:30am & 4:00~6:00pm.

Landscape:There is always a green cast, a ghost in the images.
Street shots:Light red or green or blue in some of the images.
Flora:80% of their colours can be closely restored.

Note 1:
A frame outside of the image is purposely made for checking white balance. White balance is checked after conversion and before adjusting colours.

Note 2:
A software, Film Lab for Desktop is tried, 14 days trial, and the results are the same, more or less.

Is my light not bright enough & shutter speed too slow?

What it the appropriate exposure for this kind of work?

How to eliminate the excessive colour cast, please?

Thank you.
