Hello all and thanks in advance for any advice given.

I am currently 8 weeks in as of the 29th July to air layering a large, old japenese maple, that is planted in the ground and was taller than a house. I recently trimmed it.

I have made a multiple of air layers using rooting compound, plant pots filled with sphagnum moss and wrapped in cling film.

I checked the air layers yesterday as the tree is at my Aunts house. I couldnt see roots yet. The tree has started to sprout a large amount of bud and leaves below the air layering.

The tree has to be at least 30 years old and has been planted in the ground for the most of that time. The trunks are approximately 6inches in diameter.

Does this appear all OK to you all?

As you can tell I am not the most experienced with air layering, this is my first tree of this age and size.
