Air layer success on Sharp's pygmy Japanese maple

I am looking for info on long term success of air layered Sharp’s pygmy Japanese maples. I rescued two from a landscape renovation, I tried one air layer this year on the strongest tree. I am getting alot of roots already. My question is how the tree grows on it’s own roots long term? You always see them on grafted root stock. Thanks in advance everyone.


Sharps do just fine on their own roots. In fact most of the Sharps Pygmy that I’ve seen are not grafted at all.
