I've read about a propagation method for Rubus called 'mist propagation', which apparently works for every known member of the blackberry family. Basically it creates a very humid environment that keeps transpiration levels at a minimum, which allows for high light intensity, that in turn keep respiration levels also at a minimum. The combination of these effects allow the plant to use more substances for rooting. You can read more about it here, and learn how to do it at home here. Remember I'm not an expert at anything, so if this info isn't accurate I wouldn't know. I'm just good at googling, lol.

well i am definitelty going to look into those links....  all the crap i have gotten off of google the last two years has been useless, but this shit is worth the work, for sure.... i am trying to clone plants in a small space though, this solution sounds enourmos...

     What time of year are you taking your cuttings?

ive tried early spring, ive tried late summer, ive tried june whatever that is... cuttings dont work with this wierd hybrid. unless there is someone out there with a specific black rasberry hybrid cloning hormone secret im afraid i will have to do this at natures pace which will mean i cant share it because each rooting is too valuable.

My method is very simple, when they start to grow for the season older limbs start to bend towards the ground and establish new roots/plants. I take those and put them where I want. I have about 30 * 3 feet of raspberries and blackberries I maintain. 

these are not blackberries, nor are they rasberries... they are more than 6x crosses, but the only ones i know are in it are raspberry, wineberry, and wild blackberry... the dude kept the European ones a secret

ive tried that :)   and while it works, it takes forever.  i mean the plant buries a new part of itself in the ground every season and sprouts roots from the tendril it buried....  it should be ridiculously easy to clone these things, and yet its not.  I'm worried it has something to do with the various plants it got crossed with to make it grow here...
