Lace leaf maple air layer

This branch was taken from my parent's back yard. Used plastic sheeting, sphagnum moss, and rooting hormone. The response was not great honestly. Only got one thick root to form on the bottom of the branch. I'm curious if it will survive the winter. If it does, there are tons of buds that will form new branches. This is a candidate to go back into the ground. I'll update when/if it pushes. Potted into straight turface with a drainage layer of expanded shale. That table is 20" for scale.
