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. 

Polana raspberries (Rubus idaeus 'Polana') are a popular cultivar known for their early and abundant fruit production, making them a favorite among gardeners and commercial growers alike. Here's a detailed description of the Polana raspberry plant:

1. Plant Type and Size:

Type: Polana raspberries are perennial shrubs belonging to the Rubus genus in the Rosaceae family, related to blackberries.
Size: They typically grow to a height of 4-5 feet and have a spread of 2-3 feet. The canes are vigorous and semi-erect, producing multiple stems that bear fruit.
2. Leaves and Stems:

Leaves: The leaves of Polana raspberries are compound with three to five leaflets. They are medium green, toothed along the edges, and have a slightly rough texture.
Stems: The canes are sturdy and covered with fine prickles (thorns), which help protect the plant from browsing animals.
3. Flowers and Fruits:

Flowers: Polana raspberries produce white to pale pink flowers in late spring to early summer. These flowers are borne on second-year canes (floricanes) and are attractive to pollinators such as bees and butterflies.
Fruits: The berries are medium-sized and typically ripen in early to mid-summer, often earlier than many other raspberry varieties. When fully ripe, they are bright red and have a sweet-tart flavor. The berries are juicy and excellent for fresh eating, jams, pies, or freezing.
4. Growing Requirements:

Sunlight: Polana raspberries prefer full sun but can tolerate partial shade. Aim for at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily for optimal fruit production.
Soil: These plants thrive in well-draining, fertile soil rich in organic matter. They prefer a slightly acidic to neutral pH (around 5.5-6.5).
Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during the growing season and fruit development. Avoid waterlogging, as raspberries are susceptible to root rot in excessively wet conditions.
5. Planting and Care:

Planting Time: Plant Polana 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 adequate air circulation and room to grow.
Mulching: Apply a 2-3 inch layer of mulch around the base of the plants to conserve moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature.
Support: Provide support for the canes, such as a trellis, fence, or raspberry-specific support system, to keep them upright and facilitate harvesting.
6. Pruning and Maintenance:

Pruning: Prune Polana raspberries annually to maintain plant health and encourage fruit production. Remove old, dead, or diseased canes in late winter or early spring before new growth begins. Thin out crowded canes to improve airflow and light penetration.
Fertilizing: Apply a balanced fertilizer in early spring before new growth starts, following package instructions. Avoid over-fertilizing, as it can lead to excessive vegetative growth at the expense of fruit production.
7. Pest and Disease Management:

Pests: Monitor for common raspberry pests such as aphids, Japanese beetles, and raspberry fruitworms. Use appropriate methods, including insecticidal soap or natural predators, to manage pest infestations.
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.
8. Harvesting:

Timing: Harvest Polana raspberries when they are fully ripe, usually in early to mid-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, store them in the refrigerator for a few days, or freeze them for longer-term storage. Polana raspberries are versatile and can be used fresh, in preserves, baked goods, or other culinary creations.
Polana raspberries are valued for their early fruiting, productivity, and delicious berries. With proper care and maintenance, you can enjoy a plentiful harvest from your Polana raspberry plants year after year.
