Hardwood cuttings do not require any light until the leaves form.
Keep the bottom temperature above 65F.
In the case of hardwood cuttings you likely will need a rooting hormone like
Rhizopon AA #2 or #3 (0.3 and 0.8% IBA). The products found in the Home
Depot and Franks have too low a concentration of rooting hormone then is
required for root formation for hardwoods; they are likely best for
herbaceous cuttings.

For information on how to use the rooting hormones see:

and for taking of the cuttings including juvenality see:
