Air layering a Sharp’s pygmy japanese maple

Parviflora Bonsaï

This spring I bought this nice big Sharp’s pygmy Japanese maple. However it has a disturbing reverse taper. So I decided to air layer it where all the branches emerge and make it a multi-trunk/kabudachi tree. After watching Ryan Neil’s streams on Mirai Live, I realized I should have air layered it after the leaves had come out… but hey, I am still learning! I hope this procedure still works, as this could potentially become a very nice tree! Cheers!
