Japanese maple is a deciduous tree, so it belongs in an environment where the four seasons are in the cycle. To emulate such plant living conditions in your home garden, you need to provide soil that is rich in microorganisms present in a deciduous forest. You also need to create good drainage in the plant's container to prevent the soil from being saturated with water.
While rooting a cutting in water is a convenient way of plant propagation, it is not the only easy process available to home gardeners. The most important thing to remember when trying to root a cutting is that the root has to be handled carefully to give it a higher chance of surviving during the transplantation process.
