Cuttings…Why is it sprouting but not rooting?

I’m frustrated with cuttings… in May/June I tried over 10 cuttings but after a month only 3 rooted. I tried again recently with different varieties. A lot of of them sprouted but when i pulled them out the bottom was rotting. I tried a seed starter media with a lot of perlite as well as only pine bark fines. I made sure it has good air circulation and no direct sunlight but I had the same results. Why does this happen?
