We're in a large, heavy vehicle being held up by a levitating rock and planning on growing the plants with mana. Please explain to me how this example is a significant difference.
Edit: Aside from the fact that the anime version can go into space and the specific plants used are sentient trees.
Besides the fact that we're talking about two completely different world settings where 'magic' works differently? And um, we don't use sentient trees.

We don't know if it can produce suitable soil for planting, and we'd likely need an earth specialist(or someone skilled in that field, like a former farmer) to determine such a thing. Furthermore, as I said, we would have to acquire enough soil to create a viable greenhouse, in addition to having the proper environment. Certain plants have to be tended a certain way and have certain conditions. Having a greenhouse at the colony would be better, and whenever we stopped in we could deliver seeds from other areas, and restock on herbs and medicines. This would likely require us recording the plant's habitat, so if we did return with something unique it can be utilized.

But ST would have the final verdict on whether or not a greenhouse on a boat would be feasible. I personally cannot see us being able to craft something large scale on a moving vehicle, but a small habitat for certain types of plants, sure. Regardless, it's something to look into.

Goods news everyone, we already have a room reserve for plant life, mana bearing and otherwise. Here's the link, fourth panel from the top:

Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but what Toruel said to Fila'sofi gives me the impression that Fila has some knowledge of botany, maybe even wood or plant affinity or foci. Just wishful thinking on my part.
