how can i prevent the plant stem from being woody?

I was wondering how could i prevent the plant stem from being too wood-like and not easy to work with, is it to much nitrogen? or maybe the fan? i like when the stem is flexible and easy to work with and I'm having a hard time this time

      • You will get a more flexible stem from sativas but really I mean they almost all turn like that at certain age, younger it is the easier it is to work with. I would start lst as sprouts.

        • Are you feeding it any Silica? That will make them woody as hell.

            • Imo, different strains have different characteristics as far as how woody the stems are. I love Maui Waui but I have a hell of a time training it under my net. California Orange on the other hand is fantastic to Scrog. I feed both the same nutrients and treat them exactly the same so I think it is just a variation of the strains.

              • i agree! California Orange Bud is an excellent choice under a net. The first time i grew 5 of them (no scrog) from seed and they all grew fast and stretched from beginning to end, had a ton of 'inter-nodal spacing' and stayed long and lanky!  This Jock Horror SCRoG has fought me pretty hard all the way! when i was spreading branches i split the damn thing at the 'Y' because it was so woody

              • I think there is a definite sweet spot during the grow that the plant is flexible.  After that its set up to carry weight, and hard to train.
