They need humidity from the start. The stalk will die and then you have a 50/50 shot of them growing from the ground. I would now cut them 1" from the soil and put something like this around them. Take the cuttings and also do the same with them all in one container. Our Youtube video shows you how to create extra plants from the cuttings. Give them two weeks with the new set up. Do not let the humidity barrier to fog up or get real wet inside. This will cook your plant. Just create bigger holes at the top until you get that balance. It has to be a big container around it. Not a 16 oz plastic bottle. I hope this helps.  Just give it a couple of weeks. 

The Dorman red raspberry (Rubus allegheniensis 'Dorman Red') is a specific cultivar of the Allegheny blackberry, known for its unique characteristics and adaptability. Here's a detailed description of the Dorman raspberry plant:

1. Appearance:

Plant Type: The Dorman raspberry is a perennial shrub that belongs to the Rubus genus in the Rosaceae family, closely related to blackberries.
Size: It typically grows 3-5 feet tall, with a spread of 2-3 feet.
Stems and Leaves: The canes are erect and thorny, with green stems that can have a reddish tinge. The leaves are compound with three to five leaflets that are dark green and toothed along the edges.
2. Flowers and Fruits:

Flowers: Dorman raspberries produce white to pale pink flowers in late spring to early summer. These flowers are attractive to pollinators like bees and butterflies.
Fruits: The berries are medium-sized and typically ripen in mid to late summer. They are bright red when fully ripe and have a sweet-tart flavor. The berries are juicy and can be eaten fresh, used in jams, pies, or frozen for later use.
3. Growing Requirements:

Sunlight: Dorman raspberries prefer full sun to partial shade. They thrive in locations that receive at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily.
Soil: These plants prefer well-draining, loamy soil rich in organic matter. They can tolerate a range of soil types but do best in slightly acidic to neutral pH levels (around 5.5-6.5).
Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during fruit development. Avoid waterlogging, as raspberries are susceptible to root rot in overly wet conditions.
4. Planting and Care:

Planting Time: Plant Dorman raspberries in early spring or late fall when the soil is workable and temperatures are moderate.
Spacing: Space plants 2-3 feet apart in rows that are 6-8 feet apart to allow for air circulation and room to grow.
Mulching: Apply a 2-3 inch layer of mulch around the base of the plants to retain moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature.
Support: Consider providing support for the canes, such as a trellis or raspberry-specific support system, to keep them upright and facilitate harvesting.
5. Pruning and Maintenance:

Pruning: Prune Dorman raspberries annually to remove old, dead, or diseased canes. Pruning should be done in late winter or early spring before new growth begins. Thin out crowded canes to improve airflow and light penetration, which helps prevent diseases.
Fertilizing: Apply a balanced fertilizer in early spring before new growth appears, following package instructions. Avoid over-fertilizing, as it can lead to excessive vegetative growth at the expense of fruit production.
6. Pest and Disease Management:

Pests: Monitor for common raspberry pests such as aphids, Japanese beetles, and raspberry fruitworms. Use insecticidal soap or other appropriate methods if infestations occur.
Diseases: Watch for diseases such as powdery mildew, raspberry leaf spot, and anthracnose. Maintain good air circulation around plants and avoid overhead watering to reduce humidity levels, which can contribute to disease development.
7. Harvesting:

Timing: Harvest Dorman raspberries when they are fully ripe, usually in mid to late summer. Ripe berries are bright red, easily detach from the plant with a gentle tug, and have a sweet-tart flavor.
Storage: Use harvested berries immediately or store them in the refrigerator for a few days. Alternatively, freeze berries for longer-term storage or use in preserves and baked goods.
By following these detailed descriptions and planting instructions, you can successfully cultivate and enjoy the flavorful fruits of the Dorman raspberry plant in your garden.
