  1. Wait a second (or three). If they just dropped a quonset hut over the bare martian soil — how did they seal the edges so that the atmosphere (earth normal, sort of) doesn’t escape? That was the whole point of the movie The Martian, he had to bring martian soil inside the large room to plant, and then he had an atmosphere blowout.

  2. Many plants will have a hard time in soil with no organics at all. Either they brought some compost, whether from earth or kitchen trash, plus sewage from the ship, or they have plants modified to not care.
    Since they can do genetic engineering, they could take genes from stuff like Lupines I suppose.
