Default Salvias from cuttings

Has anyone got any tips for starting native salvias from cuttings? Particularly the cleveland's sage and cultivars not so much black or white sage.

I've tried 100% perlite and 50/50 perlite and peat moss. But the cuttings shrivel up before they root, despite misting a few times a day. Then I tried the plastic bag treatment, and had one cutting take out of a dozen.

I'm thinking that I might have to resort to a real misting system that could be set up to mist every hour for about a minute. However, I can't find a timer system that can be programmed to turn on for a minute every hour during the day, but not at night.
