Awesome!
Is there a certain time of year best for air layering?
I have a pear tree in my garden I've been fancying a practise on.

My research showed May through June due to the ease of removing bark due to high sap flow.

Cool might give it a go.
Did you just use bonsai soil?
I read sphagnum moss is used quite often for air layering.

I used a 1:1 ratio of perlite and vermiculite. Some people use sphagnum other straight perlite. It’s hard to say what method will for for you given your region and cultivation techniques.

Healthy maples typically take 4-8 weeks.
