Rocket Stove heating up a Geo-Dome for Green House

I am planning to build a Geodesic Green House with half or the wider button being 5-6 ft underground or so. I am also planning on using a Rocket Mass Stove to heat it up. I have here a picture of a rough draw on the plans and placement of the Rocket Stove and the areas to which would be heated up evenly. This is not final, but a simple pattern I could only think of that could evenly disturb heat in a circular greenhouse.10 ft is not the final but will be a template so that simple times it for larger scale.

I am free for any suggestion of better ways to have even distribution of heat in a dome. I was told to heat up the air would be better since it would heat up the soil and it being 5 ft along with button walls being black and with materials or resources to absorb and release heat. But one of the things I wonder is how long/large the pipe or stove should be for the dome? with it being underground what would be the perfect way to get ride of the co2 and all?

The purpose of this topic would be to have even heat distribution while taking into the account of the possibility of making a larger rocket stove. Anything else is secondary, Thank You!
