I agree, and there must be a fairly substantial temperature control system as well.
Temps on the Moon range from -280F to +260F during a Lunar day/night cycle (13.5 Earth days), so the plants would be steamed and then freeze dried every 13.5 days.

One of the things that points to hoax is they supposedly landed on the dark side of moon the side that always faces away from earth which means you can not check out their landing site via telescope from earth or space station.
I hope it's not a hoax tho that would be cool.
Though Chang'e 4 team members have touted the biological experiment's potential to help pave the way for future lunar settlement, it isn't a core scientific payload for the mission. In 2015, Chinese space officials asked students around the country to submit ideas for a payload to fly aboard Chang'e 4. The minibiosphere was the winning entrant out of more than 250 proposals, according to China's state-run Xinhua news agency.

Why is it that the moon sickness continues on.
These are about as high res as looking through a 50 cent telescope.

This have anything remotely to do with the subject under discussion or are you just promoting a Protocols of the Elders of Beijing?
