The phase that follows the oyster grafting is delicate. The healthier an oyster is, the less likely it will reject the nucleus, be affected by diseases or mortalities and the more likely it will produce a higher quality cultured pearl.

They also need to be cleaned on a regular base in order to remove biofouling (faunal and floral deposits on the oyster shell), which can hinder a healthy growth and pearl production.
