Propagating Actinidia kolomikta - hardy kiwi

I took some dormant cuttings of hardy kiwi “arctic breeze”? today. I’ve never seen this plant before, it is quite unique. The branches I took seem to have no dormant buds only big leaf scars, but they must be there somewhere! Do I need to find a cutting with visible buds?

The buds are there they have not started to swell. I prefer to use cuttings of firm new growth (taken in late July/August)apply 0.6 to 0.8% IBA (rooting hormone) stick in well drained soil & mist....taking 3-4 weeks to root.

Is it critical to use intermittent mist on hardy kiwi or can i use some sort of humidity chamber?

Did this work? I took some dormant cuttings of my artic and anna last February and placed them in water inside and I was able to root only one of 11 and it died when I transplanted it. I have room for one more kiwi plant and would like a female.
