Last night in TLC i watch Taiwanese people growing oysters and was confused, Could someone tell me how do we grow/plant oysters?

I think I saw the same program - They "implant" a grain if sand or a artificial form inside an oyster and "grow" a pearl by putting the oyster in a sort of cage with dozens others and then back in the ocean.

Seems like we are on the same page... they put the empty shell and hand it above the water and how will the oyster come back in those shell?

The oyster is in the shell the whole time. The oyster puts a coating around the sand that over time turns into a pearl, but the coating is to make the sand smooth to them that's inside their shell. We just think the end results (the pear) looks good. Hope this helped a bit.

Thanz @Woozy... That helped a lot however i was confused bcoz they pierce the empty shell and put all of them together like a sort of necklace and hang it on the pole of the stick so was wondering where dat oysters came from.
